Bali - warning for convective clouds

Bali’s Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) has warned locals to be on alert over the emergence of convective clouds, which cause strong winds, locally known as puting beliung.

The head of BMKG, said that the convective clouds were now moving around very fast.

Last Sunday, strong winds hit an area of Denpasar, causing significant damage. Earlier this week, strong winds also affected Buleleng regency.
Bali is now very hot, with temperatures ranging between 32 and 35 degrees Celsius. People must be very watchful for the possibility of puting beliung.
