During the last five years, several floods have stricken some areas in Bengkulu City. They happened due to the geomorphology of Bengkulu City which is hilly. Hence Bengkulu City becomes a potential city of being stroke by floods during rainy season every year. In addition, some factors, including a high rainfall (over 3000 mm) and tidal flood for both all rivers and sea, contribute to a high frequency of flood occurrence. This study was aimed to map the areas of potential flood in Bengkulu City. Supporting data had been collected directly from field survey through spatial zoning approach based on position, contour, land elevation, altitude, and distance from river as well as from sea. We used GPS type Epoch TM 10 L1 for obtaining data of coordinate and altitude. The data of distance from the rivers and seashore line have been assessed through GoogleEarth. All data have been scaled for describable calculation. From the acquired data, several figures have been drawn to map of flood risks for some areas in Bengklu City. Additional results of the study were that flood could potentially happen due to rainfall which exceeds average rainfall, especially for some areas such as the districts of Muara Bangkahulu and Singaran Pati.
