Due to heavy rain flushed Wondama Bay district, West Papua, since Sunday October 3rd 2010, resulting in overflow of three rivers there (Sanduai river, Anggris river, and Manggurai river). River overflow resulted flash flood which brings out muds, woods and rocks. Data of victims until this time are still mazy according to several informants. But if it is accumulated, total victims are more than 80 people, not include 60 people and more are disappeared. Transportation access to location are too hard to reach. This limited access complicates more for agencies to conduct direct response on the field. To access affected area, only through the sea where the issue of scarcity of fuels and limitation of transportation became constraints.
