Flooding and landslides kill forty seven in Central Java.

Forty seven people have been confirmed dead and another fifteen are missing after a series of landslides and flash floods in Central Java, Indonesia, this week. Landslides are a common problem after severe weather events, as excess pore water pressure can overcome cohesion in soil and sediments, allowing them to flow like liquids. Approximately 90% of all landslides are caused by heavy rainfall.

Landslides are a common problem in Java, particularly in the rainy season, which lasts from October till April, and can result in an annual rainfall in excess of 2000 mm in parts of Central Java.
