Asian floods hit Indonesia
FLOODINGinremote northwestern Indonesia has swept away thousands of houses and killed at least 122 people, officials said, as Malaysia braced for more torrential rain and wind.
Indonesian authorities have deployed boats and helicopters to shift aid to survivors of flash floods and landslides that days ago displaced more than 400,000.
Officials were still evaluating the extent of damage, because some of the hardest-hit areas were in remote jungle or beyond washed-out roads and bridges.
But the Aceh disaster relief task force have said that more than 13,000 homes across six districts had been severely damaged or washed away entirely.
Nearly 200 people are still missing in Aceh, the province hardest hit by the 2004 tsunami.
