34 Killed, Dozens Missing in Landslide, Floods in Indonesia’s East Nusa Tenggara

A joint search and rescue team continues to locate dozens of people who have been reported missing after landslides and flooding struck Lembata regency in Indonesia's East Nusa Tenggara recently.

At least 34 people have died, and dozens remain missing after cyclone-triggered rains in the province have caused flooding and landslides that uprooted trees, blocked roads, and buried homes and people.

Lembata deputy regent Thomas Ola Langoday said dozens of residents are still missing.
"As of now, 34 residents were dead, 35 others are reportedly missing," said Thomas on Wednesday, April 7.

Thomas said those who have been reported missing are the residents of Amakaka village and Waimatan village.
