Natural Disaster: Large Rains Causes State-Wide Flood In Australia.

Believe it or not, flooding is the deadliest type of severe weather. There’s probably a lot about floods and flooding you don’t know.

The BOM has said that the huge swathe of rain that has hit the east coast is now so large it has caused a “state-wide flooding event”. 

The north coast, south coast, Sydney and parts of western NSW are now all under threat. BOM meteorologist Justin Robinson said there were now flood alerts on a vast number of rivers. In addition, a new band of rain moving in from central Australia to the east on Monday and Tuesday will affect not just areas already sodden with moisture but other areas which up to now have been relatively untouched. 

“We've got a flood watch all the way from the Queensland border down to the Victorian border, all those coastal rivers.”

We will update you on anything that pops up.
