World News: Sydney floods force thousands to evacuate Updated: 2022-07-04 05:54:54 KST

Heavy flooding in the Australian state of New South Wales has forced thousands of residents in Sydney to evacuate.
The evacuation order was given on Sunday after Australias largest city experienced heavy downpours and gale force winds.
According to local reports, least67 flood evacuation orders have been issued across the region, alongside a further 66 evacuation warnings.
This comes as three major rivers burst their banks.
The Australian Defense Force has also been dispatched to help locals get to safety.
The floods come just over a year after extreme rainfall in March 2021 led to what was labelled a "one in 100-year" flood.
Meanwhile, Australias weather services predict rain will intensify over the next two days.
