The search and rescue mission is still working their way through the floods as debris from collapsed buildings and other objects like cars, motorcycles and other forms of transportations blocked some roads. In an area in Jakarta, an 8-year-old child and an 82-year-old retiree died when a landslide hit.

The rescue mission continues to find missing victims reported by families. As the floods seem dangerous still, the search and rescue mission will continue with hope and caution.
