Flood waters threaten Australian city hit by storm

Posted on: June 12, 2007

SYDNEY – Surging floodwaters were on Monday threatening an Australian city badly hit by violent storms over the weekend, as thousands of people evacuated from towns north of Sydney were allowed to return home.
As many as 6,000 people were evacuated from their homes on Sunday after deadly storms saw the Hunter River burst its banks in some areas and threaten to breach the levee surrounding central Maitland.
But flood waters rose more slowly than expected overnight and those living inside the levee were allowed to return home early Monday.
