Massive landslide sweeps away mountain road in eastern Indonesia


A huge landslide swept away a mountain road in eastern Indonesia on June 26, 2020.

One local captured the horrific collapse of the main road at Battang Barat, Wara Barat district, with several residents heard screaming in the background.

A building was swept away as the massive chunk of land slid down and completely buried the road.

The Trans Sulawesi Road, which connects Palopo and Tana Toraja, was cut off. 

No casualties or injuries were reported.

Heavy rains have also been affecting Bolaang Mongondow Selatan in North Sulawesi, since June 27. About 220 houses were flooded, affecting 1 100 people.
