More evacuations were underway in the flood-ravaged Australian state of Queensland on Tuesday as waters continued to rise.
Relief teams continued rushing supplies into the eastern city of Rockhampton. In some of the state's more rural areas, farmers said they were scrambling to send tons of crops out before waters damaged them and flooding made their transport impossible.
Police said 10 people have died as a result of flooding since November 30 - many of them swept away by swift waters. An area the size of France and Germany combined has been affected.FULL STORY
