“The red flood is due to the batik dye, which has been hit by the flood,” Dimas Arga Yudha told Reuters news agency. “It will disappear when it mixes with rain after a while.”

Rivers in in Pekalongan have previously changed colour due to the dyes used in making batik designs, with bright green waters flooding another village last month, according to Reuters.

Indonesia is frequently hit by flooding, with at least 43 people killed following a storm that hit the capital Jakarta earlier this year.
