More wild weather on the way as Sydney floods



The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has warned that more wild weather is on the way, as flooding hits Sydney

One person has died following torrential rain, flash flooding, and damaging winds.

The weather crisis has forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes, with warnings more wild weather is on the way. 

The Emergency Services Minister says “this is a life-threatening emergency situation”.

In a matter of 24 hours, there have been 83 flood rescues. 

Major roads have been cut off and people are being warned to evacuate before it’s too late.

Experts say the floods have been worsened by climate change and a La Nina weather season.

While the east coast low which sparked the deluge has weakened, the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) is still forecasting up to 120mm of rain in the harbour city.

The SES is warning residents in low-lying areas near the Hawkesbury River downstream of Wisemans Ferry, north west of Sydney, to evacuate.

Closer to the city, people in some parts of Penrith, North Richmond and Windsor have been warned they may need to leave.

It’s the third time this year many of the areas being inundated.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
