In a press release, Deputy Governor of East Nusa Tenggara state, Josef Nae Soi, reported that more bodies were found with the latest search and rescue efforts.

Stating that the total number of deaths increased to 181, Josef stated that the search for 48 people who could not be heard was continuing.

The rains, which have been effective since April 5 in the cities of East Flores, Lembaga and Alor in the state of East Nusa Tenggara, caused floods and landslides.

After the flood and landslide, about 15 thousand houses became unusable.

Floods and landslides frequently occur in Indonesia in the equatorial belt, especially between October and April.

According to the natural disaster agency, 125 million people, half of the population of the archipelago, live in areas where there is a risk of landslides.
