INDONESIA-WEATHER-FLOODS

A technician (L) and air force pilots make final preparation before cloud seeding with sodium chloride via a Hercules plane, at Halim airport in Jakarta on January 26, 2013 as part of their effort to prevent flooding in the capital by using the weather modification techniques. Indonesian authorities will use generators and cloud-seeding measures to defuse and push away rain-laden clouds to avoid more flooding that has paralysed Jakarta, an official said, heavy rain over the mega-city last week caused 32 deaths and at its peak forced nearly 46,000 people to flee their inundated homes, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, added.
