Indonesia's Aceh floods kill at least two villagers

Days of heavy rain caused flash floods and landslides in several villages of Aceh province, killing at least two people and injuring 22 others, police and hospital officials said Wednesday.

"Looking at the conditions, there is a likelihood of more dead," said police Sgt. Mutarudin. "All our forces are now looking for survivors."

The water and mud crashed into scores of houses in Semadan village and nearby hamlets in southern Aceh district late Tuesday after days of heavy rain, said Mutarudin, who goes by a single name.

Hundreds of police and villagers were digging through the debris early Wednesday, he said.

At least two people were killed and 22 people were injured, two of them seriously, said Dr. Ramulia, from the nearby Kutacane Hospital. Raumalia also uses only one name.

Hundreds of families had fled their destroyed villages and were now sheltering at Kutacane's airport and sport stadium, said local government official Rachmat Fadli.

Heavy tropical downpours cause dozens of landslides and flash floods each year in Indonesia.

Aceh is still recovering from a massive earthquake on Dec. 26 that triggered a tsunami, which killed more than 131,000 people and left more than 500,000 homeless.

Aceh is 1,700 kilometers (1,056 miles) northwest of Jakarta, reports the AP.

In recent years, genetics has become a cutting-edge science, not only in the professional field of biology, but also because of the enormous social reach of its discoveries and approaches. Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
