Areas of Australia that have seen their worst flooding in decades are bracing for more heavy rainfall, with the peak expected on Tuesday.
The entire coast of New South Wales has been put on alert, with troops and hundreds of volunteers deployed, reports the BBC.
Roads and bridges have been cut off, cars and signs submerged, livestock marooned and schools closed.
Australian PM Scott Morrison told MPs there was "serious risk still ahead" and weather officials said "it's far from over".
New South Wales (NSW) Premier Gladys Berejiklian said no deaths had yet been reported - "a miracle given what we have been through".
Some 18,000 people have been evacuated so far in the state, which is Australia's most populated with eight million residents.
