A tropical cyclone killed 19 people on the Indonesian island of Java, with most of the victims caught under a landslide.
Flights around Indonesia have been disrupted due to the eruption of a volcano on the neighboring vacation island of Bali to the east.
"Thousands of homes, hectares of agricultural land and public facilities are also flooded," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for Indonesia's disaster agency.
Cempaka is expected to move away from Indonesia later Thursday, but more flooding and landslides could follow in its wake, the agency said, adding that it urgently needs blankets, clothes and inflatable boats.
