Indonesia floods toll climbs to 165

Jakarta, April 9 (SocialNews.XYZ) The death toll from the floods and landslides triggered by tropical cyclone Seroja in Indonesia's East Nusa Tenggara province has increased to 165 with 45 still missing, the National Disaster Management Agency said.

"Two died in Bima district, West Nusa Tenggara province, and 163 others in East Nusa Tenggara province," the agency's head Doni Monardo said.

 

In addition, 45 people are still missing and another 20,929 are displaced, reports Xinhua news agency.

The Indonesian police and the army have deployed 7,572 personnel to search for the missing people.

Meanwhile, 115 public facilities were damaged, a number of bridges were broken, and agricultural irrigation and rice fields were submerged.

Likewise, 8,322 houses in East Nusa Tenggara and 5,333 others in West Nusa Tenggara were damaged.

The Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency said such extreme weather as heavy rains, strong winds, and high sea waves of up to six meters occurred after the tropical cyclone Seroja was swirled in the Savu Sea, south of East Nusa Tenggara Province with a peak on April 5.

Currently, Seroja moves away from Indonesia's territory, but the impact would still be felt in a number of provinces in the south of the country for the next few days.
