Java, Indonesia – Flash flooding and landslides in Indonesia have killed 24 and left more than two dozen missing, with mud avalanches burying people inside their homes. Torrential rain since Saturday has triggered serious flooding across Central Java, with thousands of homes inundated. Areas prone to landslides in the densely-populated province were the worst hit, with drivers swept off roads and thousands of homes destroyed by fast-moving walls of mud, rock and water. In one district, five people were buried in their homes as a landslide swept through the village. In another, nine people were killed as they tried to clear rubble from a road.

Thailand – Persistent heavy downpours over the past few days in and around Bangkok had flooded at least 14 raids in the north an east of the city and surrounding areas. Andaman coastal provinces from Ranong to Phangnga, Phuket, Krabi and Trang are braced for downpours until today with high tides rising to at least two metres. One of the worst-hit areas was Nakhon Phanom, where a four-hour downpour flooded some roads in the provincial town up to 50 centimetres.
