Australians flee floods as toll rises to 12, Sydney on alert

France24 says Floodwaters crashed into more towns on Australia’s east coast as a deadly storm front barrelled south on Wednesday towards Sydney, where the main dam began to spill water.

The death toll rose to 12 in a week-long disaster that has washed cars from roads and forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes as waters lapped at balconies and roofs.

“This is terrible. This is terrible. One life lost is too many,” said New South Wales deputy premier Paul Toole after confirming a third death in the flood-hit town of Lismore.
