Flooding and landslides that have affected parts of Buleleng in North Bali on Thursday, January 23, 2014, are being blamed for 4 deaths and 3 injuries, as reported by NusaBali.

Two of the fatalities occurred in a single vehicle overwhelmed by a landslide that swept the car and its passengers into a 30-meter deep ravine.

The accident happened on the main road connecting Singaraja to Denpasar via Kintamani. The car was swept off the road in the village of Mangening at Kubutambahan in Buleleng. Dead are I Putu Wijana (46) of Sangket village in Buleleng and his companion I Made Sudarsana (40) from Tegalalang in Gianyar. The accident occurred at 5:00 pm on Thursday when the men were traveling to Tegalalang. The depth of the ravine and landslide conditions only allowed rescuers to retrieve the men’s bodies at 7:00 am the following morning.

The two other fatalities claimed the lives of Ni Kadek Sri Ayu Padmini (19), a student of STKIP from Bebetin Village in Buleleng, and Ni Made Ayu Budi Utami (14) from Lokapaksa Village also in Buleleng.

Padmini was found dead in the middle of a rice field near her home at 11:30 pm  on Thursday night, swept to that location by landslides and rushing flood water. The motorcycle she was riding at the time of the mishap was recovered on Friday morning.

Made Ayu Budi Utami perished when a wall at her home toppled down and killed her on Thursday evening at 10:00 pm.

The three injured due to extreme weather in North Bali were I Putu Kasta (40), Ni Komang Wartini (36) and Ni Luh Putu Arini (16). The three were respectively the father, mother and sister of Made Ayu Budi Utami and were all injured when the same building collapse that killed Utami.

The rains and winds that struck North Bali also affected Bangli, Tabanan, Gianyar and Badung.

The floods in the area are blamed for the destruction of 18 homes and two motorbikes in four separate villages.

Bali Daily says “scores of houses were swept away" in Petemon and Pengastulan villages by the surging water from the nearby Tukad Saba River.”
