The recorder was recovered at around 8 p.m. Tuesday and has been handed to the National Transportation Safety Committee for examination, Indonesia’s Transport Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said at a briefing Wednesday.

More than 50 people were killed by flooding and landslides in Indonesia and Timor-Leste on April 4. A collision between a cargo ship and a fishing boat killed at least two fishermen and left 15 missing off Indonesia ’s main island of Java, officials said Sunday. The fishing boat capsized late Saturday with 32 aboard after hitting the Indonesian bulk carrier MV Habco Pioneer off Indramayu district, said Deden Ridwansyah, the head of the search and rescue agency.

At least 86 people are killed and thousands are left homeless after mudslides and floods swept away villages in Indonesia and East Timor. Rescuers are searching for 100 missing people among the mountains of debris. The bodies of three people were recovered after being swept away by floods in the village of Oyang Barang, Indonesia , where 40 houses were also destroyed. Indonesian President Joko Widodo said he had ordered his cabinet ministers and the chiefs of the military, police and disaster agency to carry out emergency response measures and search and rescue operations as quickly as

The 60-year-old was asleep with his family on Sunday night as torrential rain battered the community at the eastern end of the vast archipelago nation.

In seconds, their lives changed forever.

"Suddenly we heard people scream 'flood!'" said Sugeng, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.

Yenni Suryani, the Indonesia country manager for the aid agency Catholic Relief Services, said Donggala appears to be inaccessible by road or air and that help may have to come by sea. Strong aftershocks have continued to hit the island since Friday's earthquake. Rescue teams dug by hand to free 24 people trapped in the rubble of the Roa-Roa hotel in the city of Palu. The hotel's owner told local media people could still be heard crying out for help, but said that no heavy lifting equipment was available to rescue them.

He and his wife fled their home, but their 20-year-old daughter Indri did not make it out alive and her body was later found on a beach.

"She was trying to hold on to a cupboard but the current was so strong that she lost her grip," Sugeng said.

"We buried my daughter yesterday... I'm devastated."

Adonara island, home to about 125,000 people, was among the areas hardest hit by the floods and landslides that killed more than 150 in Indonesia and neighbouring East Timor.

The disaster was triggered by heavy rain and wind from one of the region's most destructive cyclones in years, which ripped across a cluster of islands in the neighbouring Southeast Asian nations.

Far-flung Adonara, dotted with beaches and a volcano, is accessible only by boat. It has no local hospital.

The Scream is the popular name given to a composition created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The original German title given by Munch to his work was Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature), and the Norwegian title is Skrik (Shriek).

More than 50 residents were killed and a dozen were still missing on Wednesday.

- 'Thundering noise' -

Indonesia's disaster agency said it is trying to airlift the injured in helicopters to a city and provide shelter for those left homeless.

Among the evacuees was Elisabet Lena Huki, 61, who took refuge at a local government office with her husband, elderly parents, children and grandchildren.

She was coming back from an Easter mass on the predominantly Catholic island when tragedy struck.

"We had rushed home from church because my elderly parents were there," she said.

"Suddenly I heard a thundering noise... and I screamed to my sleeping husband that there was a flood."

Her neighbours sobbed in fear as chaos struck, while Huki's family searched frantically around their waterlogged home for her nephew Yeremias.

"He's still missing," she sobbed, remembering the 33-year-old she thinks of as a son.

"I want him to be found, even if it's just his body... so we can lay him to rest and visit his grave. That's my only hope now."

With just the clothes on their backs, Huki and her extended family also have to think about their own survival in the weeks ahead.

"I need diapers for my elderly parents but the stores are closed," she said.

"We're all exhausted and weary. I'm not thinking about wealth and possessions right now -- I just want my family to have shelter."
