Sydney records its wettest year ever and braces itself for severe flooding

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Sydney records its wettest year ever and braces itself for severe flooding” – below is their description.

With three months left in 2022, Australia’s largest city Sydney has already recorded its wettest year, with 2,213 millimetres (87 inches) of rain. More downpours are expected as the city is forecast to experience major flooding. Scientists link the unusual event to a warmer climate and the La Nina phenomenon, which is happening for three consecutive years in the Australian east coast.
