Written by wave FM on March 22, 2021
About 18,000 Australians have been evacuated from flooding across New South Wales (NSW) as heavy rain continues to batter the east coast.
Days of torrential downpours have caused rivers and dams to overflow around Sydney the state capital and in south-east Queensland.
Officials say the “one-in-a-50-year event” may continue all week and have urged the public to exercise caution.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister SCOTT MORRISON has offered funds for those forced to flee.
