Amaq Riki, 35, was found dead after his car was buried by a landslide that hit Pelawangan, a tourist area in Sembalun subdistrict, East Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), on Wednesday morning.


Amaq was in his car with his two friends when the landslide hit. His friends sustained only injuries.


NTB Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) head Mohammad Rum said the Pelawangan-Sembalung area was the entrance to the Sembalun tourist site, which is located at the base of Mount Rinjani.


He said the landslide began at 5:15 a.m. local time after heavy rains hit in the area. At 6:30 a.m., Amaq drove his friends to Sembalun.


“When they saw that the landslide had blocked the road, they got out of the car to check the condition of the road to see whether or not they could pass. Only a couple of minutes later another landslide hit the area,” Rum said.


BPBD personnel, supported by police and military officers, helped evacuate the victims. The joint force personnel are now working to clean the road from rocks and soil resulting from the landslide.


Rum asked all NTB residents to stay alert as the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) had warned that the rainy season would continue until April. (hol/ebf)
