The floods in Australia are worse than ever: Nine people have died in the past 24 hours, as floodwaters hit Brisbane, the capital of the state of Queensland. An additional 59 people are missing, raising fears that this flood will be worse than the 1974 flood that killed 14 people. More than 9,000 homes are expected to be inundated. This flood was caused by a rise in the Brisbane River, caused, in part, by Queensland’s previous flood which covered an area larger than France and Germany.
