The landslide came down from a height on Serasan, which is one of the small Natuna Islands on Borneo’s west coast. Several buildings have been demolished, or covered so that only parts of the roofs are visible.

So far, eleven dead people have been found and the authorities estimate that around 50 are still missing.

“Many people who need help have not been able to be reached because we still have difficulty getting to the affected areas,” says Abdul Mahari, spokesperson for Indonesia’s state emergency agency.

The landslide followed a longer downpour over the islands.

Normally, it takes about five hours to reach the islands by boat, but the weather is said to make it take significantly longer.
