There is people asking for donations because the heavy rain caused rivers near Pondok Gede to burst, covering much of the city with stinking black water. The floods were the worst to hit Indonesia for many years. Telephone and electricity lines were cut and several roads were left underwater. Up to 100 people died in the disaster and around 300,000 have been left homeless.
