Australia: Back-to-back disasters intensify

Major flooding in NSW forces mass evacuations

Evacuation orders are being enforced in several towns along the northern New South Wales (NSW) coast, including Kempsey, Port Macquarie and Bellingen, and emergency services are warning people not to enter floodwaters, said a report.

Flood warnings are in effect for at least 11 rivers in NSW as floodwater from a low-pressure system continues to swamp a large region.

At least two deaths have so far been reported in the region as a result of flooding.
