11 Killed as Tropical Cyclone Cempaka Hits Java, Bali

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Eleven people were killed in Pacitan, East Java, as tropical cyclone Cempaka hits Java and Bali. “Heavy rain has caused rivers to overflow and has also resulted in landslides,” the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a written statement received by Tempo on November 28.

Nine people were killed in a landslide and two were swept away in floods in Pacitan, Sutopo said. “Landslide victims are yet to be evacuated due to difficult access to the location,” he said.

Floods hit 13 villages in 3 sub-districts in Pacitan, the spokesman said. The disaster has cut the southern road access.

The Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics earlier issued an early warning of tropical cyclone Cempaka around 32 kilometers South-Southeast Pacitan waters. On November 28, the wind speed reached 65 kilometers per hour.
