Nineteen people including five children have been killed in flash flooding and landslides in Indonesia.

Hundreds of people have been displaced after driving rains overwhelmed the Cimanuk and Cikamuri rivers in the early hours of Wednesday morning, causing flood waters to reach up to two metres, National Disaster Management Board Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said.

Among the dead from the fast-rising floods were an eight-month-old toddler and four other children under the age of ten, Sutopo added, citing a casualty report from the local disaster agency in Garut.

More than 1000 inhabitants were forced to leave their homes and sheltered in improvised tents installed by the rescue teams.

In Sumedang district, landslides hit two houses, leaving three people dead and one missing at about 22:00 Jakarta time Tuesday, according to Sutopo.

Emergency shelters and temporary kitchens have been set up to assist those made homeless by the disaster.

The disaster agency of Indonesia has warned people to be alert as these kinds of disasters might occur this wet season due to a La Nina weather phenomenon that threatens unseasonably heavy rain.

A total of more than 30 villagers were injured in both districts, Nugroho said.
