Australia – New South Wales threatened by flooding

Saturday, March 3, 2012

About 75 per cent of the territory of New South Wales, home to Australia’s largest city, is either flooded or under threat of being hit by torrential rains, officials said on Saturday.

Thousands of residents living on the outskirts of Sydney have already been evacuated as meteorologists forecast that heavy rainfall is unlikely to show any signs of abating in the region in the coming days.
