Aussie towns evacuated amid floods from cyclone philippine star
MetadataShow full item record
Communities along Australia’s east coast have been evacuated as floodwaters sparked by the remnants of a powerful cyclone poured into roads and threatened to inundate homes across the region. The region has been subjected to days of drenching rains after Cyclone Debbie slammed into the Queensland coast on Tuesday. Paramedic Lisa Smith said she was assessing the extent of flooding on Thursday on Rita Island, a coastal community near the town of Ayr in Queensland state when she saw the shark. At first, she thought it might be a dolphin and moved in for a closer look. The 1-meter bull shark was already dead when Smith found it.
