Burst Dam Kills 77 in Indonesia

A combination of torrential main and decaying infrastructure has led to tragedy in Indonesia, where a Dutch colonial-era dam exploded outside the capital city, Jakarta, killing at least 77 in the resulting flood. Indonesian officials say more than 100 people are still unaccounted for, so the death toll is likely to climb as authorities uncover more bodies. The rush of water destroyed some 300 houses and left another 200 flooded.
