Disasters provide damage caused by a series of events that are considered as triggers, and a series of social factors. One of social factor, namely the inability of the community to understand the disaster itself, is an obstacle that must be overcome so that the impact of the disaster will be reduced. Researchers choose the Situ Rawa Besar Settlement as a research site because the area is a densely populated settlement that surrounds the Situ area, which often has a high frequency of flooding during the rainy season. The analytical method used in this study is a quantitative descriptive approach, with surveying and random sampling. The results showed that the Situ Rawa Besar Settlement was inhabited mostly by people with a lower-class economy. For the level of public knowledge about flooding is at a sufficient and good level, with an average value of 58.00. Whereas the community adaptation strategy in the face of flood disasters is at a good level with an average of 33.03, with the most frequently agreed actions, namely maintaining the cleanliness of waterways followed by the need for knowledge about handling floods both before and after.
