Conditions after flooding?

Does anyone know the conditions in Manado and Bunaken after the Jan. 15/16 flooding? Is it safe to travel there? Thank you kindly for any information (my 60+ year old mom is traveling there solo next week... I'm a bit worried about her!)

biztrl, hi

I would sincerely advice anyone against travel to any area of archipelago affected by flood/ natural disasters. The wet season in Indonesia is ON till April.

You can contact leonard layonsky seran- BeWelcome. He lives in Manado, speaks good English and an active member of North Sulawesi travellers group. IMHO specific info from locals who live in the area is more accurate.

Yes, it is save to travel to Manado. Things start to go back to normal here in Manado. I was in Manado in January 31 morning. However, I will recommend you to contact the hotel in Manado to confirm arrival.
