    Jakarta: Three people died after being swept away by flash floods that struck some areas in 23 villages of Malaka Regency, East Nusa Tenggara Province, on Monday.

    Search and rescue workers encountered difficulties in reaching the affected villages owing to hindered access to the disaster-hit areas, according to Acting Malaka Regent Viktor Manek.






    The local government is striving to evacuate those severely affected by the floods in the midst of extreme weather, sparked by Tropical Cyclone Seroja, Manek noted here on Monday.

    The tropical cyclone's seeds were detected since April 2 and triggered heavy rainfall and high waves. 

    Effects of the cyclone were felt in most areas of East Nusa Tenggara.

    Apart from affecting Malaka Regency, this extreme weather phenomenon was also experienced by those in East Flores Lembata, and East Sumba as well as Kupang City.
