TEMPO.CO, JakartaFloods swamped eight villages in three sub-districts in South Aceh District on Saturday following heavy rains, according to the Aceh Disaster Mitigation Office (BPBA).

"Flood waters still inundated residential areas (on Sunday)," BPBA acting chief Ilyas said through the Data and Information Center (Pusdatin) in Banda Aceh early on Sunday.

The floods caused by heavy rains began to hit the villages on Saturday at 9:31 p.m. local time, he said.

The flood-hit villages include Lawe Hijo, Kuning 1, Kuning 2 and Pinding in Bambel sub-district, Pasir Puntung in Semadam sub-district, Lawe Loning in Babul Makmur sub-district, and Lawe Dua and Sebudi Jaya in Bukit Tusam sub-district.

The heavy rains poured down most of Southeast Aceh District, thereby causing Lawe Kinga River to burst its banks.

"As a result, the dikes of Lawe Kinga and Lawe Pasar Puntung collapsed and residential areas and a national road were flooded," he said.

The floods cut off Kutacane-Medan national road as floodwater reached a height of 90 centimeters, he said.
