Ein ‘Tausenjahrereignis’ ist die Flut, die sich Sidney nähert

By Ninian Carter

March 2, 2022 - Extreme Regenstürme haben bisher bereits 10 Menschen entlang der Ostküste Australiens getötet, es ist ein "Tausendjahrereignis".

Floodwaters from an unprecedented storm deluge, that submerged several towns and bridges in Queensland and northern New South Wales, is moving south towards Sydney, bringing with it the strong likelihood of flash flooding.

More than 600 military personnel have been deployed to aid flood victims, with helicopter crews rescuing more that 1,000 people trapped by rising floodwaters. At least 10 people have died so far.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for Sydney, predicting life-threatening flash floods – 2022 has been the city’s wettest summer in 30 years.

Australia’s east coast has been dominated by the La Nina climate pattern for two successive years.
