"Especially develop a good communication network. The call center 112 must be intensified, don't let one second empty of network communication with the residents," he disclosed, at City Hall, Wednesday (11/16).

Considering the rainy season has hit Jakarta. The peak of rain itself is predicted to occur in January-February.
