The clean-up is underway in Northern Australia today, after a powerful cyclone tore across the Queensland state.
The remnants of the storm, combined with a monsoon, dropped more than 300 millimetres of rain on the region on Monday. The result was intense flooding, which damaged homes and washed out roads.
Whatís left of the cyclone is now making itsí way south towards New South Wales. Only there, the rain is being welcomed.
Itís been 10 years since the last major flood hit the north-western part of that state. Farmers have been dealing with drought for year; but now, rivers are running again.
