Indonesia – At least two people were killed and six more were missing after torrential rains and severe flooding in parts of Indonesia, the disaster agency said Friday (Mar 8), forcing the evacuation of hundreds of people. Heavy rain has pounded Indonesia for days, forcing the Citarum river – dubbed “the world’s dirtiest” – on Java island to burst its banks, and causing deadly flash floods in the eastern part of the sprawling Southeast Asian archipelago. Residents in a dozen communities on the outskirts of Bandung city, east of the capital Jakarta, were forced to wade through streets filled with chest-high water in places.
