After seeing floods, Indonesian leader to visit quake zone

MAMUJU, Indonesia (AP) — Relief workers worked to clear up rubble of collapsed buildings Tuesday on an Indonesian island where a deadly earthquake left thousands of people homeless. The 6.2 magnitude earthquake Friday that killed at least 84 people was one of multiple recent disasters in Indonesia. President Joko Widodo visited a flood-hit area on Borneo island on Monday and was scheduled to visit the quake-hit areas of West Sulawesi province Tuesday to reassure people the government’s response is reaching those struggling after the quake. The National Search and Rescue Agency counted at least 30,000 survivors who have moved to shelters in the hard-hit city of Mamuju and its neighboring district of Majene in West Sulawesi, as the government and aid agencies pooled efforts to meet the survival needs of shaken communities.
