JAKARTA -- Floods blocked roads and railways in Jakarta and thousands of people abandoned their homes in low-lying areas as torrential downpours virtually paralyzed the Indonesian capital Friday.
Streets normally jammed with traffic were quiet as floods brought public transport to a near-standstill, preventing many people from getting to work or school.
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was also reportedly working from home.
Sutiyoso, the governor of Jakarta, put the entire city on emergency alert, with the worst-hit areas in the west on the highest warning level.
