Abstract

Flooding is one of the most common problems that occur as a result of urban sprawl. The development of suburban areas (urban sprawl) is one of the factors that lead to increased intensity of flooding in Tanah Mas, Sukajadi and Sukomoro villages. This study aims to determine the flood vulnerability index in the urban area of Talang Kelapa, Banyuasin regency. The research method used was qualitative approach and spatial analysis using GIS (Geographical Information System) and SMCA (Spatial Multi Criteria Analysis) using limited rational model based on soil type, landform, rainfall, river elevation, land use, geology and slope class. The results show that most of the urban area of Talang Kelapa, Banyuasin regency, falls in the medium category, 61.5% of the area. Slope class and land cover are the most influential indicators of flood hazard, followed by soil type and rainfall indicators. The areas classified as very flood prone are mainly located in Sukajadi and Tanah Mas villages.
