Floods claim two lives

A 25yo man died yesterday after his car became stuck in floodwaters in Glenorie in Sydney’s northwest. The Pakistani national was on his way to his first day at a new job, and authorities said he may not have been familiar with the road. And in Queensland, authorities yesterday recovered the body and ute of 38yo David Hornman from the flooded Canungra Creek near the Gold Coast. He’d been missing since Monday morning. And while much of Australia’s east coast enjoyed the sunshine yesterday, flooded river systems in NSW and Queensland wreaked havoc for residents across the affected area who had to evacuate their homes. Even the Red Centre copped a drenching… Parts of Victoria and Tassie are now facing severe weather warnings as the troublesome weather system continued south.
