    Australia PM tours flood-hit Victoria state

    CNA – Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese yesterday toured flood-hit parts of Victoria state, including the city of Melbourne, as three southeastern states continued to grapple with a flood crisis after days of heavy rain.

    Parts of Victoria, southern New South Wales and northern regions of Tasmania were under flood warnings after a weather system last week dumped more than a month’s worth of rain on the southeast.

    The crisis comes after Australia’s eastern states were hit by severe flooding in early 2022 as the country endures a third consecutive La Nina weather event, bringing heavy rains.

    Earlier, the prime minister flew over flood-affected areas of regional Victoria with the state’s premier Daniel Andrews.
