Floods and snowfall hit Australia

Heavy rains caused floods in Victoria, and snowfall fell on Tasmania. Heavy rains caused floods in the north-eastern regions and Melbourne. Rescuers received more than 3000 calls for help. The rivers that flooded the banks flooded the settlements.

At the same time, heavy snowfalls fell on the Tasmanian regions, so 123 mm of snow fell in the city of Echuka in 24 hours, which became a record for the entire history of observations since 1858.
