TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Floods and landslides hit at least 16 villages in four sub-districts of Simeulue District, Aceh Province, damaging hundreds of homes.

The four-affected sub-districts were East Simeulue, Teluk Dalam, West Teupah, and Central Teupah, Teuku Ahmad Dadek, head of the Aceh disaster mitigation office (BPBA), said here on Sunday.

Incessant heavy rains caused several rivers to spill over their banks and triggered flooding in the district.

In East Simeulue, floods and landslides struck the villages of Air Dingin, Suak Buluh, Suka Karya, Suka Maju, Sinabang, Lugu, Linggi, Sefoyan, Ganting, and Kuala Makmur.

Among villages hit by the natural disasters in Central Teupah were Abail and Nancawa.

In Teluk Dalam, three villages affected by flooding and landslides were Kuala Baru, Luan Balu and Kuala Bakti,

Only one village was inundated in West Teupah, namely Leubang Hulu.

The flood waters reached a height of up to one meter, he said.
