Sebanyak 700 jiwa mengungsi di GOR, di mushala dan ada juga yang membuat tenda-tenda darurat menggunakan terpal di pinggir-pinggir jalan. Kebutuhan urgent para pengungsi saat ini adalah pempers bayi, makanan siap saji, bahan makanan untuk dapur umum, air bersih, obat-obatan dan tim medis.

Kemarin siang (14/11), 5 Relawan RZ telah berangkat menuju lokasi banjir untuk membantu proses evakuasi, sebab masih banyak warga yang terjebak di rumahnya. Relawan RZ membawa perlengkapan evakuasi seperti perahu karet, helm, pelampung, sepatu boot dan dayung.
