Chaos in Sydney as 'rain event' hits
Sydney's road and transport network was in chaos and hundreds of people were rescued or forced to flee their homes after the city suffered the sort of weather seen once in a century.
"We've had a hell of a rain event," New South Wales Roads Minister Duncan Gay said. "It's that one-in-a-100-year event that you hear of."
Flooding closed dozens of roads and some rail lines and train stations, while ferries were cancelled and there were flight delays at Sydney Airport.
