Rescuers have been searching for dozens of people still missing after floods and landslides swept away villages in Indonesia and East Timor, killing more than 150 people and leaving thousands more homeless. This, Al Jazeera reports, after torrential rains from Tropical Cyclone Seroja turned small communities into wastelands of mud and uprooted trees, and sent about 10,000 people fleeing to shelters across neighbouring Southeast Asian nations. Authorities there said they were scrambling to shelter evacuees while trying to prevent any spread of COVID-19, while the region was at the same time bracing for its meagre health facilities to be overwhelmed as the number of injured soared.
