Two people in Brunei have been killed after heavy rains caused landslides and flooding that were among the sultanate's worst ever, a newspaper reported Thursday.

A 46-year-old woman died when a landslide crashed into her house as she slept, the Borneo Bulletin reported, citing a police spokesperson. In another incident, a 19-year-old woman trying to walk home from work drowned in fast-flowing flood waters, the report said.

Water also swept into a power station, leaving some residents without electricity, while telephone service was also disrupted, the Bulletin said.

The heaviest rains occurred Tuesday night, it said.
