Homes became entombed as thick two-meter deep layers of mud have blocked streets after flash floods hit Indonesia on Tuesday (July 14).
Footage from Luwu Utara in South Sulawesi shows how the single-story homes were battered, leaving debris behind.
According to local media, in some areas, the mud reached more than two-meters high, burying everything in its path.
At least 16 people have died, and dozens more are still missing, with rescuers Wednesday (July 15) searching the area for survivors.
National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Raditya Jati explained that flooding was triggered by heavy rain, causing three rivers to overflow.
He said: ''The provincial road is covered in mud and that blocks access to the main command post and the affected areas.''
Officials said electricity to homes has been cut off, and access to the district road is currently blocked.
Flash floods have hit several countries in Southeast Asia, including Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The region is currently experiencing its annual rainy season, which lasts until September or October and sees strong downpours throughout the week.
