Heavy rains in Tolitoli Regency in Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi Province caused flooding Friday in the villages of Silondou and Janja, according to the Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management (BNPB).

A total of 350 homes were damaged and a bridge was closed to traffic due to the risk of collapse.

Officials said necessary units are working in coordination to meet flood victims’ needs.

They are currently trying to find out whether other settlements were damaged due to the floods.

The meteorology agency warned that there may be floods due to showers in various regions tomorrow, including Palu, Sigi, Donggala, Parimo, Poso, Buol and Morowali.

Indonesia is located near the equator, and floods and landslides often occur, especially from October to April.
