Crocodiles, snakes wash up in Australia floods

Canberra: Devastating floods in Australia has forced thousands of people from their homes and brought snakes and crocodiles onto the streets as the weather office on Monday forecast more rain with damaging wind gusts. Much of the city of Townsville in Queensland state is flooded, with residents left without power and some compelled to seek safety on the roofs of their homes, CNN reported. Intense rain on Sunday forced authorities to open the floodgates on the Ross River Dam to relieve pressure, releasing around 1,900 cubic metre of water per second downriver. On Saturday, as the flooding rapidly worsened, police in parts of Queensland were going door-to-door to warn residents to leave their homes. IANS
