After less than two weeks volcano-triggered tsunami in Indonesia on Tuesday (Jan 1) faced torrential rain led to worst land-sliding that killed at least nine people and left 34 others missing. The landslide occurred during New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Tons of mud that rolled from the surrounding hills late Monday buried 30 houses in Sirnaresmi village of West Java’s Sukabumi district. Authorities struggled to get tractors and other heavy equipment over washed-out roads as heavy rain was hampering search efforts.
Earlier the tsunami damaged or destroyed at least 611 homes, 69 hotels and villas, 60 small shops and 420 boats, said Dr Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB).
