Inhabitants of Australia’s southeastern regions faced exceptionally severe storms on Friday. It was raining so intensely that there were flash floods in parts of Sydney. The violent aura is expected to persist in the country for the next few days.
A massive storm front swept through Australia’s southeastern regions on Friday. There were severe storms, heavy rains, and sometimes hail. The rain did not bypass Sydney, which was hit by flash floods locally.
Due to heavy rainfall, there was a power cut in the Sydney suburbs. Local energy companies were fixing faults on an ongoing basis.
Authorities warned people to stay away from broken power lines and overcrowded streams. Residents were asked to secure loose items and – if possible – to stay at home.
The Meteorological Office has previously issued a weather alert for the capital of New South Wales. There were alarms about the possibility of a dangerously strong wind, heavy rain and hail.
Rainy and violent weather in Australia is expected to last for the next few days. Precipitation is forecast in the Northern Territory, South and Western Australia, among others. In the last region, weather forecasters warn that in two days there may be as much rain as the average rainfall during the middle of the month.
