Indonesian flash floods kill at least 56

41882.jpegAt least 56 people were killed and dozens of others were missing and feared drowned after floods swept through villages in Indonesia's eastern province of West Papua, officials said Tuesday.

Hundreds of residents fled their homes Monday, said Mujiarto, head of the Health Ministry's crisis centre. Several bridges were swept away by the floods that followed heavy rains in Wasior district, Times LIVE reports.

According to Greenfudge.org, dozens of others are still missing and over 60 people were injured, many with broken bones and most needing to be life-flighted (transported via helicopter) to medical services.

In addition to the dead and wounded, hundreds of homes were destroyed, 30 of which were completely flattened by the storm. Schools, hospitals and a hotel were also damaged, along with roads and bridges.

Add to that power outages and downed phone lines, and you have one big mess on your hands. The only good news at this point is police and the military are on their way with tents, food and medical supplies.
