JAKARTA, Indonesia

The death toll from severe flooding and landslides that struck the Indonesian capital Jakarta over the New Year rose to 43, the state-run disaster management agency said Friday.

The deaths were caused by hypothermia, drowning, electric shocks and landslides, Agus Wibowo, the spokesman of Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency, told reporters.

“One person is reportedly missing and five others are waiting to be verified,” he said.

The agency called on people whose homes are still flooded to immediately evacuate to a safe place to avoid more casualties.
