Strong storm lashes Australia’s east

The storm whipped up waves as high as 12 metres (40 feet), which caused serious beach erosion and forced hundreds of coastal residents to evacuate. Three people have been killed in floodwaters from a strong storm that pounded Australia’s east coast over the weekend.

 




New South Wales state police say the body of a 65-year-old man was found on Monday in a car in a creek near the town of Bowral, about 120 km south of Sydney. The body of another man was found in a truck swept away by floodwaters in the southwest Sydney suburb of Leppington. In the nation’s capital, Canberra, a 37-year-old man died after his car was also caught in floodwaters.

The storm whipped up waves as high as 12 metres (40 feet), which caused serious beach erosion and forced hundreds of coastal residents to evacuate.
