Sydney’s heaviest rain in 30 years


SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – FEBRUARY 10: A submerged car is seen on a bridge over the Nepean River at Cobbitty on February 10, 2020 in Sydney, Australia.

Sydney has been hit by its heaviest rain in 30 years, bringing widespread flooding but also putting out two massive bush fires in New South Wales. Australia’s weather agency said 391.6mm of rain had fallen in the past four days in Sydney, more than three times the average rainfall for February.

The NSW Rural Fire Service called the recent rainfall “the most positive news we’ve had in some time” and said it has assisted firefighters in extinguishing 30 fires since Friday, which have caused months of devastating damage to ecosystems and neighborhoods.
