Abstract

The Flash Flood in Batu City in early November 2021 had various impacts on the community. One of them is damage to buildings and casualties. This study aims to map and describe the damage caused by Flash Flood and what needed by the community after the Flash Flood in Batu City. Considering the occurrence of this disaster in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we also want to explore the implementation of health protocols during the handling of flash floods in Batu City. The research method used is a qualitative research method with Rapid Assessment. Rapid Assessment is a quick assessment method that is carried out to obtain in-depth information about what is the background of people's behavior including socio-cultural factors in a relatively short and fast time. In this case, our Rapid Assessment is to find out quickly about the handling of the Flash Flood disaster in Batu City, to map the damage, the number of casualties, and what the community needs after the Flash Flood disaster. The data collection method used in this research is an in- depth interview. The results of the Rapid Assessment show that there are several areas in Batu City which are areas affected by the flood disaster in November 2021 which includes areas in Bumiaji District such as Sumber Brantas Village, Bulukerto Village, Padang Rejo Village, Tulungrejo Village, Sidomulyo Village, road areas Selecta and Dieng highway. In the flash flood incident, 15 people were swept away and 7 died, and caused damage to 68 residential units, damage to motorized vehicles in the form of 73 motorcycles and 7 cars. Not only that, there was damage to the residents' farm cages, such as 10 cattle pens that were washed away and 107 livestock lost. Currently, facilities for evacuation and settlement of victims of the Flash Flood disaster require availability and need repairs as a reconstruction program which includes access to clean water, waste management and cleaning, road access, electricity access, logistics facilities as well as disaster emergency response facilities, mask and hand sanitizers for residents in refugee camps are also needed so that health protocols are carried out properly and volunteers are also needed to help clean up the rubble of houses that collapsed and were washed away as well as energy to clean up mud after the Flash Flood.
