Residents witnessed their houses being partially buried in mud following deadly flash floods eastern Indonesia’s Papua province on Saturday (March 17).

At least 89 people have been killed in the flash floods the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) reported.

''The numbers of victims keeps increasing because the affected area is very large,'' a BNPB spokesperson said.

Dozens are still missing and thousands have been evacuated to temporary shelters.
