Australian Officials Survey Sydney-Area Flooding

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology warned of “possible life-threatening” flash flooding in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales on July 6, while flood warnings also persisted for the Sydney area.

This footage was published by the New South Wales Rural Fire Service. It includes drone footage showing the extent of the flooding in “the Windsor area of Sydney” and crews “working to clear and reopen” a road in Wallacia.

Sky News Australia reported that 60,000 people had been told to evacuate due to the severe flooding. “It’s going to be days and into the weekend and possibly next week before we start to see river levels drop to a safe level in those areas,” a representative of New South Wales State Emergency Service said.
