Death toll rises after Indonesian dam burst

The search for survivors continued Saturday after a dam burst Friday during heavy rainfall in Cirendeu, Indonesia, USA Today reported.

The flood of water killed at least 77 people. More than 100 are still reported missing.

A 230-foot gash in the dam let loose water, rocks and debris on more than 400 homes, BBC reported.

The dam, built in 1933, had little maintenance work done over the years since it was constructed, experts told BBC.

Aldi Rojadi, 34, whose house was damaged in the disaster, told USA Today he hopes someone will be held accountable for not repairing the dam after multiple reports of leaks over the years.

The government plans to give the victims millions of dollars in aid, the BBC reported.
