Sixteen people died in Garut district early Wednesday after they were swept away by floodwaters from an overflowing river and eight people were missing, said Sutopo Nugroho, spokesman for the national disaster management agency.
More than 1,000 residents were displaced and had to seek refuge in a military complex and other buildings, according to Nugroho.
In Sumedang district, three people died and another went missing in landslides on Tuesday, he said.
Floods and landslides are common in Indonesia during the rainy season, which usually starts in October.
