Talking about rainy season, right now we have rain almost every day. Heavy rain sometime is making problem. The example of this is Jakarta city, capitol city of Indonesia. When rain fall too long and litle bit heavy, in several area of the city got flooding. Water can be more than 1 metre depth. A lot of houses, offices and other building sink.This occures every year.
