  1.         Makkah Hit by Flash Floods, Vehicles Dragged Away 

Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – Almost a month after, the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia experienced flash floods. Now it is Mecca’s turn to be hit by a similar surge. 

The flash floods occurred after heavy rain poured down on Mecca from Thursday night to Friday morning local time. The flash floods reportedly hit Mecca’s streets early on Friday and damaged property and vehicles. 

Mecca residents shared videos on social media platforms of cars being swept away by the swift currents. The streets filled with rainwater as the sewage system appeared to be clogged. 

So intense was the rainfall that authorities at King Abdulaziz Airport asked travelers to confirm the status.

Mecca is one of the most significant pilgrimage sites for Muslims worldwide. Mecca’s Grand Mosque was submerged when the congregation got soaked in the mosque’s courtyard. 

The National Meteorological Center, on Friday evening, issued a mild warning, telling people to be aware of heavier rains in the coming days in parts of the Mecca, Medina, and Tabuk regions. 

Last month, the city of Jeddah recorded 179 mm of rain in one day on November 24 between 08:00 and 14:00. The figure breaks a record set in 2009 when 90 mm of rain fell, killing more than 120 people. After the flood, schools in the city were closed. 

Meanwhile, two of the most famous universities in Saudi Arabia, King Abdulaziz University and Jeddah University, had their first-semester final exams postponed. 

Earlier this year, in January, Saudi social media users shared videos of rare snowfall in the Tabuk region following a sharp temperature drop.

  1. PT GNI Killed at Work, WALHI Condemns No Sanctions for

PALU Company – The mining operations and nickel smelter factory of PT Gunbuster Nickel Industri (GNI) in North Morowali Regency, Central Sulawesi (Central Sulawesi), again claimed lives.

At least 2 people were reported dead due to being trapped in a crane at the smelter factory after an explosion of furnace 2 at the smelter factory Thursday (22/12) early morning.

The victim was an employee of PT GNI who operated the crane, domiciled from Parigi Moutong Regency, and was undergoing a training period. The other victim was from Pinrang Regency, South Sulawesi, the crane’s senior staff.

“WALHI Central Sulawesi noted that nickel mining activities in North Morowali Regency have brought disaster and continued danger to the people who are around the PT GNI mine,” said the Head of Advocacy and Campaign for Walhi Central Sulawesi, Aulia Hakim, in a written statement received by MAL Online, Saturday (24/24/2011) 12).

In terms of work safety, for example, continued Aulia, there have been 3 work accidents at PT GNI in the last 6 months, starting from the operator being buried in a landslide, the smelter crew falling, to the latest smelter furnace explosion yesterday.

Yaser (41) was dragged down by an avalanche due to being forced to operate a dozer without lights in the middle of the night, so he entered the sea at a depth of 26 meters on June 24, 2022.

Alif Farhan (2021) went missing while working for a crew for a furnace 6 smelter 1 PT GNI. He was found lifeless after falling next to the control lever of a horologic machine on July 6, 2022.

Nirwana and Made Devri were charred due to an explosion from PT GNI’s Smelter 2 furnace on December 22, 2022.

Apart from PT GNI, work accidents frequently occur in the nickel mining area in North Morowali Regency and Morowali Regency. For example, in September 2022, there was an explosion at a smelter in the work area of ​​PT Wangxiang Nickel Indonesia in Morowali Regency which resulted in the death of employees and injuries.

Ironically, even though it claims victims, the government has never dared to impose strict sanctions on companies. An incident that has not only happened once or twice without severe sanctions is a transparent form of the government’s attitude of not paying attention to and prioritizing the safety of the lives of workers and people in mining areas.

“Walhi Central Sulawesi strongly criticizes the Governor of Central Sulawesi and President Jokowi and the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources for not caring about the safety of workers and the community in the mining area in Central Sulawesi,” he protested.

Walhi Central Sulawesi urges the Governor and President Jokowi, as well as the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, to immediately sanction PT GNI and the companies that have claimed the lives of many workers.

“What was echoed by the government and companies related to technology being used by nickel mining companies in Morowali there turned out to be just a trick to the public.

“Many lives have been lost due to the inefficiency of business people, and there is no guarantee of safety for mining workers. One’s life cannot be mortgaged or commensurate with the results of dredging nickel there,” concluded Aulia Hakim.

Video footage shows the Cessna 150 plane hitting a stretch of sand hard on Thursday (22/12/2022) and then flipping over. The location of the plane crash just meters from the world-famous Santa Monica pier is a popular tourist spot. 

Beachgoers watched helplessly as the pilot appeared to try to land on the sand at the water’s edge, but the light plane capsized when it hit the waves. Quoted to the AFP news agency, emergency workers rushed to save the pilot and passengers. 

95-year-old passenger Rex Minter, mayor of Santa Monica in the 1960s, was killed in the crash. So far, there is no information about the pilot’s condition. 

US Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said an investigation was underway. “The pilot reported engine trouble after departing from Santa Monica Airport,” he said. 

Eyewitness Josh Feenberg said he and a friend were on the beach when the plane went down. “My friend saw the plane flying low, and (he was) confused,” Feenberg told ABC 7. 

“Then we saw it fly out there, and we thought the landing would be smooth, but it hit the water and flipped over. It was pretty scary.” Santa Monica’s pristine sand and wide-open waterfront attract locals and tourists in summer.
