At least five people were killed in North Sulawesi, Indonesia after floods and landslides caused by three days of intense rainfall hit the city of Manado.

The Head of National Disaster Mitigation Agency, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, said Sunday, December 18, that a joint search and rescue team has found two victims. Another victim was found dead in Singkil after he was carried away by the floods.

Residents of Manado are urged to be vigilant against floods and landslides.

This region is prone to both natural hazards, Sutopo said.

On December 16, The Jakarta Post reported that the main road connecting Gorontalo province and North Sulawesi has been cut off for days after flood waters destroyed the bridge connecting them.
