Death toll of Cyclone Seroja rises to 179 in Indonesia

The death toll of Cyclone Seroja in Indonesia’s East Nusa Tenggara province rose to 179 and 45 others are still missing, an official said on Monday.

“We have been able to reach all the affected areas and there are no more isolated villages,” East Nusa Tenggara’s Deputy Governor Josef Nae Soi told a virtual press conference with the National Disaster Management Agency.

Soi said several broken bridges have not yet been rebuilt, hampering economic activities.

He said temporary solutions including using army ships and state-owned ferries have been suggested.
