    Australia - 8 dead, 12 natural disaster zones declared in NSW

    The death toll has risen to eight after three days of incessant rain, floods and cyclonic winds wreaked havoc in New South Wales, Australia. Homes and vehicles have been destroyed, emergency services are at full stretch and 12 natural disaster areas have been declared.

    The death toll from the storm has now risen to at least eight: two men and one woman drowned on Tuesday in the regional town of Dungong; a woman's body was retrieved from waters near Maitland yesterday, not long after four other deaths were reported around the state - two were killed on the New England highway after a head-on collision during dangerous weather conditions, a driver also died in a collision at Galston, and an elderly pedestrian also died in East Gosford.
    The weather has eased now and a massive cleanup operation is set to begin this morning, but some people near St Georges river are still being evacuated.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    One of the people killed in the crash was the lead singer of a band.

    The 86 year old lady who died when her car was swept away was just going out to get some milk in case she was flooded in. The red car in front of her stalled and she tried to drive around.

    So incredibly sad.
