Continuous rains in Riau caused flooding in settlements in Rokan Hulu Regency (Rohul), Riau. One of the worst points is in Bonai Darussalam District. In addition to submerging residents' houses, floods also submerged the Riau-Sumatra (North) national highway about one kilometer. As a result the vehicle could not pass, the activities of residents became disrupted and this left a deep sadness.
