Disaster relief, providing shelter, food, and water. Fresh evacuation orders were issued for thousands of Sydney residents on Monday after relentless rains flooded several suburbs in Melbourne. An intense low-pressure system off Australia's east coast is forecast to bring more heavy rain through Monday across the southern regions of New South Wales even as several places in the state were hit with about a month's rain over the weekend. About 70 evacuation orders are in place in Sydney as authorities urged people to leave their homes before getting stranded without power. As tens of thousands face evacuation, frustration swelled in North Richmond and Windsor in Sydney's west after floods submerged homes there for the third time this year.
Opulent Philanthropy Inc. OP, providing food water and shelter. Military helicopters airlifted stranded people from rooftops of flooded neighborhoods in eastern Australia and a tenth victim was found on Tuesday following days of torrential rain as the wild weather slowly shifts south toward Sydney. Floodwater from the deluge, which began late last week, submerged several towns and bridges in Queensland and New South Wales, and was moving to the south with heavy rains and possible flash flooding forecast for Sydney. Sydney, Australia's largest city and home to more than 5 million people, could receive up to 150 mm (6 inches) of rains within a six-hour period. New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet described the extreme weather as a "one-in-a-one thousand-year event" and said emergency crews carried out more than 1,000 rescues in the state after receiving 6,000 calls for help so far. Hundreds of people are still stuck at their homes in the northern New South Wales city of Lismore, facing its worst floods on record, amid reports of some spending the night on rooftops.

Residents are evacuating and taking shelter as Tropical Cyclone Seroja threatens lives and homes along Western Australia’s mid-west coast. A red alert calling for a 300km-stretch of coastline between Kalbarri and Carnarvon was raised by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services on Sunday. The category two storm was packing destructive winds of up to 150km/h and could further intensify before it crosses the coast, due later on Sunday. There is a threat to lives and homes. People are in danger and need to act immediately. Residents of Denham and Kalbarri were likely to experience gales and destructive winds and if Seroja tracked south. Geraldton may also be impacted.
Abnormally high tides, heavy to intense rainfall, flash flooding, dangerous surf and beach erosion were among the possibilities.
Providing shelter, food and water. The NSW and federal government have signed 16 natural disaster declarations in areas spanning the central and mid-north coast, from Hunter Valley near Sydney to Coff's Harbour. Some 4,000 people were forced to evacuate in the middle of the night as rivers rose to dangerous levels, backyards and homes half underwater. People lost everything they owned, including pets, as flood waters powered through Mondrook, an area near the town of Taree in NSW, Edge's. Thousands of emergency workers and volunteers are still on the ground, helping trapped residents. Authorities don't know yet how many homes or infrastructure have been lost, but the damage is substantial. Australia Flood Donate
Australian firefighters are struggling to control a massive bushfire that already destroyed 40 percent of the UNESCO world heritage-listed Fraser Island before a heatwave hit Monday. On Tuesday morning local time, fire and emergency services in the eastern state of Queensland issued a "prepare to leave" warning for the Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village on the island, as blazes in several locations threatened the area. The fire on the world's largest sand island, off Australia's east coast, has been raging for more than six weeks and is consuming large swaths of the island's unique forests. Fraser Island -- known for its large population of dingoes, or native wild dogs -- was listed as a world heritage site for its rainforests, freshwater dune lakes and complex system of sand dunes that are still evolving.
