120 people killed by flash floods in Indonesia's Papua


 Cyclone Idai has caused immense destruction to more than 120 who have lost their lives in the wake of the attack  in Mozambique and Zimbabwe and still more are missing.
Due to storm and floods, some 65 have been reported  dead in Zimbabwe and 62 in Mozambique and many more remain missing. In the affected areas, a number of houses and bridges have been swept away by the disastrous floods. Idai hit Mozambique first before moving to Zimbabwe
The cyclone tore across the region of Zimbabwe and Mozambique on Saturday.
At least 120 people have so far been killed by flash floods in Indonesia’s eastern Papua province, an official said on Sunday, as rescuers raced to find more victims of the disaster.
The floods in Sentani, near the provincial capital of Jayapura, were triggered by torrential rain and subsequent landslides on Saturday, and also left 59 people injured.
Dozens of homes were damaged by floodwaters, national disaster agency spokesperson Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.
“The number of casualties and impact of the disaster will likely increase as search and rescue teams are still trying to reach other affected areas,” he added.
Two dead, hundreds evacuated amid severe Indonesia floods
“The floods were likely caused by a landslide.”The waters had receded but officials were still trying to evacuate people.
“The joint search and rescue teams are still doing evacuations and not all affected areas have been reached because of fallen trees, rocks, mud and other material,” Nugroho said.
Video footage from the scene showed rescuers administering oxygen to a victim who appeared trapped beneath a fallen tree.
Uprooted trees and other debris were strewn across muddy roads, while at Jayapura’s small airport a propeller plane lay partly crushed on a runway.
Papua shares a border with independent Papua New Guinea on an island just north of Australia.
Flooding is not uncommon in Indonesia, especially during the rainy season which runs from October to April.
In January, floods and landslides killed at least 70 people on Sulawesi island, while earlier this month hundreds in West Java province were forced to evacuate when torrential rains triggered severe flooding.
The Southeast Asian archipelago of some 17,000 islands is one of the most disaster-prone nations on Earth, straddling the Pacific Ring of Fire, where tectonic plates collide.
In December, the western part of Java island was slammed by a deadly volcano-triggered tsunami that killed about 400 people.
Also last year, the city of Palu in Sulawesi was rocked by a quake-tsunami disaster that killed thousands, while hundreds of others died in a series of quakes that hit the holiday island of Lombok, next to Bali.
