Tens of Thousands Evacuate Australia’s Worst Floods in Over a Decade

HeadlineMar 01, 2022

In Australia, torrential rains and record flooding have inundated the eastern states of Queensland and New South Wales, killing at least eight people and forcing tens of thousands to evacuate. Residents could be seen taking refuge on rooftops as the fast-rising waters submerged their homes. This is the premier of New South Wales.

Premier Dominic Perrottet: “Simply because your community has not flooded in the past does not mean that it will not flood over the course of this week. What we are seeing today is unprecedented, and the advice that we have received is that we would expect things to get worse over this period of time.”
