At least six villagers died on Sunday after being buried in a landslide that occurred in Indonesia’s West Java province at almost midnight on Saturday, an official said.
“Four others are still unaccounted for while 290 have been displaced,” a spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.
Nugroho said 10 houses were badly damaged in the landslide that occurred after torrential rain in Cimerak, a hamlet in West Java’s Sukabumi district.
The Sukabumi regional administration was conducting a search operation.
Meanwhile, Saturday’s torrential rain caused a dam in Purworejo district of Central Java province to burst, flooding four villages in the district and killing one villager.
