Floods set to peak across Tasmania

Flooding in Tasmania - Australia’s southernmost state - will peak on Wednesday, the country’s Bureau of Meteorology said, threatening one of the country’s oldest cities.


Australia’s east coast was battered this week by heavy rains, bringing giant waves and cyclone-strength winds. As the weather system moved south, it struck Tasmania in recent days. Parts of Tasmania recorded about a month’s worth of rain. 
The recent wild weather across Australia’s east coast and Tasmania is likely to bring a wave of insurance claims. The deluge left at least one person dead, emergency workers said, and caused widespread damage across the state.
