Nello stato australiano del Nuovo Galles del Sud, cui Sidney è la capitale, un’alluvione ha costretto oltre 18mila persone all’evacuazione. Negli ultimi giorni forti piogge avevano infatti causato lo straripamento di fiumi e dighe nella zona. Per il momento non ci sono notizie di morti, nonostante l’alluvione sia descritta dalle autorità locali come la più grave da almeno 50 anni. Anche la zona a sud-est del Queensland, stato che confina con il Nuovo Galles del Sud, ha subito inondazioni. Foto: Ap
