Unusually violent weather in Bali between Tuesday, March 14 and Saturday March 17, 2012, is blamed for at least 11 deaths. The bad weather in Bali is linked to the Cyclone Lua weather system over northern Australia.

The death and destruction brought to Bali by this storm system has swept across a number of regencies and municipal areas of the island, leaving a confirmed 11 people dead and two still missing  over a 5-day period.

Material damages caused by the series of storms that brought flooding, landslide and high winds have been estimated at Rp. 1.9 billion (US$211,000).

According to Kompas.com, data from the Disaster Mitigation Agency (Pusdalops) there were five deaths attributed to landslides in the Bangli regency near Kintamani; three killed by falling trees and buildings in Gianyar regency; two killed in Karangasem by falling trees; and another death under a fallen tree in Buleleng. The death toll of 11 does not include 2 more people missing following landslides in Kintamani on Tuesday night and still being sought by search and rescue workers.

Meanwhile, in Bali’s capital of Denpasar four people were injured and taken to local hospitals after being hit by falling trees on Saturday, March 17, 2012.

According to Pusdalops, materials losses caused by the bad weather are comprised of losses of Rp. 894,500,000 (US$99,400) in Tabanan regency where home, religious temples and a hotel suffered damage. Damages in Badung regency are put at Rp. 587,000,000 (US$65,200); Karangasem regency at Rp. 278,000,000 (US$30,900); Klungkung regency Rp. 135,000,000 (US$15,000) and Denpasar Rp. 75,000,000 (US$8.300).

Pusdalops is now working with regency governments in Bali to channel aid to those who suffered losses during the recent storms.
