Flash Floods, Mudslides Kill at Least 79 People in Indonesia

Days of heavy rain triggered flash floods and mudslides in Indonesia's easternmost province of Papua.  At least 79 people  have died and dozens more are missing.  Indonesia's national disaster management agency said human actions, like "settlement construction," also played a role in causing the deadly floods and mudslides.  An earthquake  also rocked the country's popular tourist island of Lombok Sunday.

The quake caused a landslide that killed at least three people and damaged hundreds of homes.

The Indonesian  National Search and Rescue Agency  said it evacuated dozens of residents from the area impacted by the earthquake.  But a spokesman for the disaster management agency warned that the death toll could go up, since rescue teams are still working to find people who are missing.
