Indonesian landslide buried nearly 100 villagers
On 12 December 2014, after heavy rainfall of 112 mm/day and 101 mm/day occurred for two consecutive days, a huge mass movement happened in Jemblung Hamlet, Karangkobar sub-district, Banjarnegara District, Central Java Provinces. Many people died suddenly because of extraordinarily widespread slope mass movements which affected a very large area in few minutes. This catastrophic landslide was unexpected by the residences. There were 98 people lost their lives because of slides and mud flow which swept houses on the down slope. Interestingly there are two types of mass movement, massive mud flow that flow toward North-West and several minutes later translational slide mass move toward North-East.
