Amru Daulay, the Madina regent was quoted by the province's head of communication and information division H Eddy Sofyan as saying that the disaster occurred at 2 am local time on Tuesday (1900 GMT Monday).

The 25 missing people are from Rantau Panjang, Lubuk Kapondong I and Lubuk Kapondong II villages. There is no casualty reported in the disaster so far.
