Australian Floodwaters Spread South to Victoria

Water seeped on to the streets of rural communities in southern Australia today as the country’s flood crisis threatened to deliver another region its worst deluge in a century.

Residents of Victoria state waited anxiously for rising waters in their towns to peak, after three weeks of flooding tore a devastating path through the north-eastern state of Queensland, in what could be the country’s costliest natural disaster.

The region’s Murray-Darling river basin links Queensland with New South Wales and Victoria to the south, and drains into the sea via South Australia on the south-central coast.
