Indonesia's easternmost province of Papua experienced torrential rains which caused widespread flash flooding and triggered landslides affecting mountainside villages. 112 people are reported to have been killed with hundreds more injured.

4000 people have been displaced as flood waters forced people to flee their homes to seek higher ground. The worst landslides occurred in the city of Jayapura.

In Sentani a river burst its banks sweeping away people, their homes and other debris as the area received 18 inches of rainfall in three days.

Rescue teams have been evacuating residents and taking them to government shelters. The military and ambulance vehicles have been moving hundreds of casualties to hospitals and shelters.
