Sources from Canberra stated that devastating floods in Australia has forced thousands of people from their homes and brought snakes and crocodiles onto the streets as the weather office on Monday forecast more rain with damaging wind gusts. Meanwhile much of the city of Townsville in Queensland State is flooded, with residents left without power and some compelled to seek safety on the roofs of their homes.



The Queensland Bureau of Meteorology said in a statement "Dangerous and high-velocity flows will occur in the Ross River Sunday night into Monday. Unprecedented areas of flooding will occur in Townsville. Expect access routes to be cut”. Recently intense rain on Sunday forced authorities to open the floodgates on the Ross River Dam to relieve pressure, releasing around 1,900 cubic meter of water per second downriver.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said "There's going to be heavy rainfall over the next couple of days and there will also be damaging wind gusts and intense rainfall with significant flash flooding. So, once again, our message is, if you don't need to be out on the roads." Moreover the floods have been caused by the heaviest rains recorded in decades in Townsville, where in seven days more than one meter of water has fallen, the average amount falling in a year.
