The Australian army has been deployed to parts of the northeastern part of the country because of exceptional floods that happen only “every hundred years”, while crocodiles have been spotted on submerged streets. The military deployed amphibious vehicles Monday to retrieve residents with headlamps perched on the roof of their home, while a flood plagued the state of Queensland. The tropical north of the huge island-continent is accustomed in this season to the monsoon rains. But the rains of the last days are far above normal, especially in the coastal town of Townsville. The authorities were forced Sunday to open the flood gates, releasing torrents of water. The Townsville Bulletin reported that marine crocodiles had been spotted on flooded streets. Such precipitation, “it’s not an event that happens every 20 years, it’s an event that happens every 100 years,” said Saturday Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk.The Australian Bureau of Meteorology warned Sunday against new rains and the risk of tornadoes and high winds in the days to come. About 20,000 homes may be flooded if rains persist, according to the Bureau. Schools and courts remained closed on Monday. According to the meteorologists, a very slow-moving monsoon system was overlying northern Queensland, and some areas would receive the equivalent of more than a year of rainfall, before improvement. The region receives an average of 2,000 millimeters of rain each year, but some cities may exceed this threshold in just a few days. (Belga) Annastacia Palaszczuk.
