JAKARTA, Jan. 22 (Xinhua) -- Regent of Gowa regency in Indonesia's South Sulawesi province said on Tuesday that six residents were killed in flood and landslide following the spillover of Jeneberang river.
The river's spiller forced the Bili-bili to open the watergate that eventually led to the flood, Gowa Regent Adnan Purichta Ichsan said.
The river's spillover occurred following heavy downpour with strong winds since Monday, he said.
He added that 10 others were reported missing by families in the affected areas.
Besides damaging resident houses, the flood also broke four bridges in the regency, said the official.
