SIDNEY, 2nd March, 2022 (WAM) — Tens of thousands of Sydney residents were ordered to evacuate in the night on Wednesday as major flooding hit the western fringe of the city of 5 million, with torrential rain continuing to batter Australia’s east coast, according to Reuters.

Thirteen people have been killed as the extreme weather has moved from Queensland state into New South Wales (NSW), submerging town centres, washing away homes and cutting power lines.
