Parts of North Wagga neighbourhood are seen partially submerged in flood waters in Wagga Wagga March 6, 2012. El Estado de Nueva Gales del Sur es uno de los más afectados. Wagga Wagga tuvo que ser evacuada, y luego viene Forbes, que se prepara para la evacuación de algunas zonas de la ciudad, por lo menos durante varios días. "Hay agua por todas partes, en la casa, en las habitaciones, en todas partes," declaró un vecino de Forbes. La villa de Yenda está parcialmente sumergida. Se han instalado diques improvisados con la esperanza de frenar la invasión de las aguas. Queensland y el norte de Nueva Gales del Sur, sufrieron inundaciones históricas el año pasado, provocando la muerte de una treintena de personas y varios miles de millones de euros en daños.

. Australie : les inondations menacent Sydney Une pluie incessante sur Sydney. La capitale économique australienne est menacée par la montée des eaux qui dévaste depuis plusieurs jours tout l’est du pays. Toutes les zones côtières densément peuplées sont en péril, car selon les instituts de météorologie, les précipitations diluviennes vont se poursuivre. L’Etat de Nouvelle-Galles du Sud est l’un des plus touché. Ainsi après Wagga-Wagga, c’est au tour des habitants de Forbes de se préparer à évacuer certains quartiers de la ville pour au moins plusieurs jours. “L’eau a commencé à monter dans les étages après avoir inondé la cour, et maintenant il y a de l’eau partout dans la maison, dans les chambres, partout”, témoigne cet homme. La ville de Yenda est en partie submergée. Des digues de fortune sont installées dans l’espoir de ralentir la progression des eaux. Le Queensland et le nord de la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud avaient déjà subi l’année dernière des inondations historiques qui s‘étaient soldées par la mort d’une trentaine de personnes et une facture de plusieurs milliards d’euros de dégâts Plus d'actualités sur : Australie, Inondations, Météo Copyright © 2012 euronews http://fr.euronews.com/2012/03/08/australie-les-inondations-menacent-sydney/

Spiderwebs Blanket Countryside After Australian Floods
In an arachnophobe's worst nightmare, swarms of spiders spin webs in a bush in flood-ravaged Wagga Wagga (map), Australia, Tuesday. After a week of record rain, floodwaters across eastern Australia have forced the ground-dwelling spiders—and at least 13,000 people—to flee their homes, according to Reuters. The rampant webs blanketing vast stretches of Wagga Wagga are failed attempts at "ballooning"—spinning web "kites" to ride the wind. Ballooning is quite common following floods, the Australian Museum's entomology collections manager Graham Milledge told the news.com.auwebsite, according to Reuters.

Towns cut off in eastern Australia flooding
Severe flooding is threatening parts of New South Wales and Queensland in eastern Australia, with towns cut off and thousands of residents evacuated.
3 February 2012 - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-16866168 More than 10,000 people in communities affected by the floods have been left stranded, authorities said on Friday. Moree is reportedly facing its worst flooding in more than 35 years, with more than 2,000 people ordered to evacuate homes and buildings. Water levels at the Mehi River there had peaked and flooding was expected to continue for several days, emergency officials said. "As you fly over the centre of the town there are streets that look like canals that have more relevance to Venice than north-western New South Wales," said Mr O'Farrell.
In the town of Mitchell in Queensland, about 200 people have reportedly been forced to evacuate after floodwater inundated their homes. Queensland Premier Anna Bligh said the hospital had also been evacuated and five schools were closed, following fears that the Maranoa river could reach a record 10-metre height. The Bureau of Meteorology in Australia also issued a severe weather warning for parts of Queensland on Friday. Massive flooding in Queensland last year killed 35 people, damaged crops and infrastructure, and hit coal production hard, driving up prices.
