Flash Flood

Australia has been hit by yet another natural disaster as floods swamped parts of the south east of the country.

Towns near the Bellingen River in the state of New South Wales, north of Sydney, have been cut off by heavy rain and declared natural disaster zones.

Thousands of people were stranded as the river levels rose, but they're now showing signs of dropping again.

Officials say the bad weather looks set to continue for a while, but they're pretty sure the worst is over.

Over the past few months, different parts of the country have had to deal worth flooding, heat waves, cyclones and wild fires.
