The evacuees included hundreds of people from two villages at the foothills of the Mount Ile Lewotolok volcano, 11 of whom were killed in a lava flood from the volcano last Sunday.
The flash floods and landslide occurred on Lembata and Adonara on Sunday, following extreme weather in the form of heavy rains over the preceding two days.
The neighboring province of West Nusa Tengara’s Bima regency was also hit by floods that destroyed hundreds of homes and displaced the local inhabitants.
