Indonesia: 24,000 to be expatriated because of heavy rains

(MENAFN) In accordance to officials, almost 24,000 people were expatriated and two children died in overflows on Indonesia’s Sumatra island, with eco-friendly activists censuring deforestation for deteriorating the weather.

The national disaster agency reported that floods hit the island for days, and triggered rivers to erupt and send water levels rising in inhabited parts.

In line with Muzakkir, from Pirak Timur in Aceh area, who like many Indonesians goes by one name “We experience flooding at least five to eight times a year — but [this] is one of the most severe.”

The “floodwaters just kept rising — at my house, they are up to my chest,” as stated by Syarifuddin, from the village of Lhok Sukon in Aceh.
