Aerial Video Shows Submerged Northern New South Wales Town Following Heavy Flooding

Heavy rainfall caused a river to overflow and submerge the town of Moree in northern New South Wales on March 25, as flooding gripped many parts of the state.

Rainfall in the Gwydir Valley caused flooding along the Mehi River, which flows through the middle of the town.

The river peaked at around 10.43 meters early on Thursday leading to the worst flooding the town had seen since 2012, according to local reports.
