Indonesia – Indonesia’s capital braced for floods Monday as torrential rain triggered landslides in neighboring West Java, killing at least two people. Hundreds of people including police, soldiers and residents were digging through the debris with their hands, shovels and hoes for four people who were still missing. Jakarta, with more than 30 million people in its greater metropolitan area, has raised its flood alert to the highest level. Flooding was already occurring in the east of the city in areas close to the Ciliwung River. More than 6,500 residents in low-lying areas in Jakarta were evacuated to shelters on Tuesday (Feb 6) morning following torrential rains that caused widespread floods across the Indonesian capital and landslides in satellite cities. They were among more than 11,000 people who were affected by the floods, officials said.
