Australian floods

Thousands of people have been urged to leave parts of Australia's third largest city, Brisbane, which is facing its worst flooding in decades.




Officials say between 6,500 and 9,000 homes and businesses are set to flood in Queensland's state capital.

Streets are largely empty and families have moved to refuge centres in some areas, with the peak of the flooding expected on Wednesday and Thursday. Flash floods across Queensland have left 10 dead and more than 70 missing. Some 200,000 people have been affected.
