Floods wreaked havoc in 16 villages in two districts in Banggai regency, Central Sulawesi, on Sunday, forcing 15,000 people to evacuate to safer ground.
“They are now staying in emergency tents set up by the Banggai authorities,” Bartholomeus Tandigala, the head of the Central Sulawesi Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD), stated on Monday.
The flood-affected districts are Toili and West Toili. Ten villages in Toili and six in West Toili were inundated.
