Summer floods swamp towns in eastern Australian

Help

Flooding in the Australian states of Queensland and New South Wales has forced thousands of families from their homes.

It is the second year running that summer rains have caused serious problems in Australia.

Widespread flooding in Queensland last year killed 35 people, damaged crops and infrastructure and hit coal production hard.
