Queensland, Australia Once Again Hit by Floods
Queensland, Australia, continues to have serious problems with flooding this month.
On Monday, high floodwaters returned to the southeastern area of the state, covered by clouds in this image, with some places receiving almost 20 centimeters of rainfall, reported the Gold Coast Mail.
The floods blocked roads, damaged homes, and stranded people, many of whom had to be rescued by Australia’s emergency services.
Here, the eastern coast of the Cape York Peninsula is veiled by clouds, and a convective area looms offshore near the tip.
On the cloud-free western coast, rivers with high water can be seen discharging sediments into the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Norman River, located where the peninsula curves into the mainland, is particularly loaded with silt.
