One fatality was reported near Semarang in central Java, and the other was in west Java, officials told the Jakarta Post.
Dozens of flights to Semarang were canceled after the airport's main runway was submerged, schools were closed and at least 4,500 people were evacuated from their homes, taking shelter at community centers, mosques or with relatives, provincial officials told the newspaper. Railways and roads in central Java were submerged by up to 3 feet of water, they said.
In Jakarta, riverbanks overflowed Monday morning, forcing more than 900 people into emergency tent shelters, Disaster Management Agency spokesman Edi Darma told the Post.
