Australia is struggling with flood caused by heavy rainfall. In the state of New South Wales, floods flooded some residential areas, while power lines were damaged. While the people living in low-lying areas in the region were asked to leave their homes, evacuation orders were given in 12 settlements for precautionary purposes.
The state of New South Wales, which hosts about a third of the population in Australia, surrendered to flood in places.
Torrential rain and floods hit “New South Wales”, the country’s most populous state with a population of 8 million.
As many rivers flooded, rising waters dislodged the houses. Images of a house floating on the Manning River revealed the scale of the disaster.
The people in 12 districts in the state were asked to evacuate their homes. Torrential downpours are expected to continue throughout the state today.
The flood disaster also affected the distribution of Australia’s corona virus vaccines. Authorities’ plans to administer the first dose of vaccine to approximately 6 million people in a short time were broken.
It was stated that energy transmission lines were damaged, while a warning was issued upon the warning in the region where record level of precipitation was recorded in March.
While dozens of people were rescued in the flood disaster, those living in low areas were asked to leave their homes.
A tornado formed in a suburb west of Sydney, the country’s largest city. More than 30 houses were damaged, trees were toppled.
A dam supplying Sydney with water also overflowed due to heavy rain. The people of the city are warned to stay in their homes. Rainfall is expected to continue in the next few days.
