Severe thunderstorms caused flash flooding across parts of the country on Sunday night. A torrential rain and hail overwhelmed city streets, trapping cars.
Nearly 100 mm (3.9 inches) of rain fell during the storm, which lasted only a few hours. This was almost three quarters (3/4) of the total rainfall, which is usually expected throughout the month of April.
A senior forecaster from the Bureau of Meteorology said the flooding was the result of slow-moving thunderstorms.
