Widespread Flooding Render Scores Homeless.


Widespread flooding in Australia left hundreds needing to be rescued after a natural disaster was declared in regions across New South Wales.

This is coming after intense rainfall started at the weekend which affected 300 homes who are evacuating in north-east Sydney.

Floodwaters had caused widespread damage across the state in a very short amount of time, and federal minister for emergency management Catherine King said, the New South Wales government is continuing to assess the damage and understand the impact of this disaster.

Emergency crews had performed about 200 flood rescues while, the state minister for emergency services Jihad Dib, said, some regions were left cut off by damaged or flooded roads, and 5,000 volunteers had worked through the night helping those affected.

State emergency commissioner Carlene York said 60 community warnings remained in place for regions affected by the flooding, and disaster support had been triggered by officials in a dozen areas to help cover clean-up costs and pay for emergency accommodation
