Triggered by unrelenting heavy rains, the landslide hit Songan Village, at 11 pm on Thursday evening, reports VIVA News.

A massive landslide in Indonesia's popular tourist island of Bali has killed 12 people, including two children.

Emergency relief efforts have been undertaken, involving soldiers, police, personnel of local search and rescue office and disaster management agency office as well as Red Cross, Sutopo said.

"Landslides happen nearly every year in Bali and cost lives", Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesperson for the National Disaster Management Agency, said in a statement.

Landslides are frequent in the Indonesian countryside during the rainy season but the resort island of Bali usually doesn't witness deadly landslides.

Across Bali, landslides also occurred in Wanagiri Village, Buleleng, and Bedugul and Baturiti, Tabanan.

Indonesian officials said in a statement they expected heavy rain to continue in several parts of the country Friday and warned of the chance for landslides, flooding and tornadoes.

Kalak said heavier rain was falling on Friday and people in the area should be aware that the steep slopes meant it was particularly vulnerable to landslides. Indonesia has one of the fastest rates of deforestation in the world.
