More than 170,000 people are sheltering in a citywide shelter that has 30 million people after all the neighborhoods are flooded.

Heavy rains beginning on New Year’s Eve caused flash floods and landslides in the area and the Lebak neighborhood in southern Java.

Today, Indonesia’s disaster agency said the death toll rose to 53 with one person missing.

“We have found more dead bodies,” said National Emergency Mitigation Agency spokesman Agus Wibowo.

Officials will visit the homeless today in the worst affected areas, he said.

Shelters are filled with victims, including infants, who rest on the mat as food and beverages are running low.

Some uses flood water and for cleaning and food supplies.

“We desperately need clean water at this shelter.

“We were cleaning at a nearby church but it was time-consuming because it uses electricity,” said one of the refugees, Trima Kanti.
