13 August 2019, Jakarta, Indonesia: Local workers cross over the sea wall to the residential area of Muara Baru, North Jakarta, from the port. The city is sinking at such an alarming rate the Federal Government is planning to move the capital off the island of Java to alleviate some of the strain that is causing the city to sink so quickly such as the draining of the groundwater table.
