Cheias na Nova Gales do Sul obrigam a evacuar 50.000 pessoas

By Phil Bainbridge

July 5, 2022 - As chuvas torrenciais que assolaram a costa leste da Austrália obrigaram milhares de pessoas a abandonar as casas com os níveis de água a subirem rapidamente. O governo declarou emergência nacional.

Evacuation orders have been given to up to 50,000 people in and around Sydney by the New South Wales government after days of torrential rain caused rivers to break their banks. A disaster zone has been declared in 23 local government areas.

Severe weather warnings remain in place at least for another day, and even once the rains have eased floodwaters will remain high for up to a week, with the risk of further flash flooding
