Melbourne Floods

Melbourne, Australia

Day 3730. 24 June 2014

Melburnians experienced the rare sight of the Yarra river bursting its city banks on Tuesday after strong winds and rain lashed the Victorian capital.

The Yarra breached its banks at Southbank, flooding footpaths and cycle routes and swelling to the extent that it came close to touching the bottom of the Queen Street bridge. Ponyfish Island, a bar which normally floats on the Yarra, has been swamped.
