Torrential Rain Flooded Jakarta's Airport Toll Road Jakarta, 08th May 2008. Torrential rain has flooded the coastal area of Jakarta, including an approximately three-kilometers part of the toll road connecting Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and the city of Jakarta, Indonesia. Media reported that 259 flights were cancelled, while nearly 1,000 flights were delayed or diverted. The rainwater has also flooded a buffer zone--which consists of mangrove swamp, a canal and aquaculture ponds--located between the toll road and the shoreline on the north coast of Jakarta, allowing infiltration of sea water. Jakarta City has been suffering from land subsidence and the rising sea level. Exclusive images. Only available via Alamy, for editorial use (news and reportage) only.
