    Background: In Indonesia, local officials have confirmed that at least one-hundred and seventy-six people are dead following the worst floods in over seventy-five years. Three rivers in southern Sumatra, near the township of Tunjung Agung, burst their banks after unusually heavy rainfall, sending thousands of tonnes of flash flood waters over villages and farms. The Indonesian government says more than three thousand people were made homeless in the flooding and a fortune in crops was destroyed. A massive emergency relief operation is underway in the area, with food, medicine and emergency accommodation being brought in by boat and helicopter. The flooding is now reported to have stopped and the waters, which covered hundreds of square kilometres of southern Sumatra, are now receding.
