    Wild weather has hit southeast Australia toppling trees, trapping people in cars and houses and cutting power to more than 200,000 homes as many braced for flooding.

    Around 220 homes threatened by a swollen creek were ordered to evacuate at Traralgon, east of Melbourne, according to officials.

    Collapsed powers lines also posed dangers and left more than 200,000 homes across Victoria without electricity.

    Meanwhile, the cold snap brought widespread snow in parts of New South Wales state.

    Some residents said they hadn’t seen the amount of snow continuously falling for a long while.
