The Eastern coast of Australia was smashed by heavy rains today. The rain sparked dangerous flash flooding that forced the evacuation of multiple regions as the fast-moving waters destroyed houses, engulfed roads, stranded towns, and cut power lines.
In Sydney, the country’s biggest city, authorities pleaded for people to stay at home as a major dam overflowed and a mini-tornado tore through a western suburb.
Most of the coast of New South Wales (NSW) state, which is home to about a third of Australia’s 25 million people, has already seen March rainfall records broken and authorities warned the downpour was likely to continue for several days.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian told a televised briefing that the rain may not stop till Thursday or Friday.
The federal government said the extreme weather was affecting its COVID-19 vaccine delivery in Sydney and throughout the state. Australia plans to deliver the first vaccine doses to almost six million people over the next few weeks.
