Earthquake and Flood Update
The Communication and Information Office of South Kalimantan Province (Diskominfo) reported that 11 districts and cities were affected by flooding, namely Tabalong Regency, Balangan Regency, Hulu Sungai Tengah Regency, Hulu Sungai Utara Regency, Hulu Sungai Selatan Regency, Tapin Regency, Batola Regency, Banjar Regency, Tanah Laut Regency, Banjarbaru City, and Banjarmasin City.
