Police divers are searching for a driver missing in Sydney’s floods after his car was washed off a causeway at Galston Gorge.
The State Emergency Service (SES) and police began their search late yesterday after a witness reported seeing a silver Mercedes being swept away.
Around 200 people have been rescued after driving into floodwaters during NSW’s three days of torrential rain.
The SES has urged people in Sydney to stay home from work today as the clean-up continues in several areas, while dozens of schools are closed with eight flood evacuation orders placed around NSW.
“Everywhere has been hit, it’s hard to pinpoint where it’s worst,” Matt Kirby from the SES said.
The past four days in Sydney has been the wettest since 1990, The Bureau of Meteorology said, with a combined 391.6 millimetres of rain falling.
As a result, Warragamba Dam which supplies 80% of Sydney’s water could soon be filled to 70% capacity.
It was at 42% just days ago.
“This is going to make a considerable difference to Sydney’s water situation,” Water NSW spokesperson Tony Webber said.
The Insurance Council of Australia has declared the weekend a catastrophe with around 10,000 claims lodged last night.
All ferries in Manly and Parramatta were cancelled this morning, but have since resumed.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said the trough was moving away from Sydney with heavy rain and flash flooding expected on the South Coast today, before the system weakens this afternoon.
Fire-ravaged areas on the South Coast were “particularly vulnerable”, the BOM said.
Thai security forces have killed a soldier after he carried out a shooting rampage that killed at least 26 people, police and military.
Sources said he was shot dead at the shopping mall where he was holed up in the north-eastern city of Nakhon Ratchasima.
“The police have killed the perpetrator and rescued eight hostages. Some were wounded,” a security source said.
The gunman, said to be angry over a financial dispute, earlier killed two people and went on a far bloodier rampage, shooting as he drove to a busy mall where shoppers fled in terror.
At least 26 people died overall and 57 were injured, according to a health official.
Sergeant Major Jakrapanth Thomma, 32, was behind the attack in Nakhon Ratchasima, a hub for Thailand’s relatively poorer and rural north-eastern region.
Police announced that they had secured the above-ground portion of the mall, shortly before midnight, but were still searching for the shooter.
16 hours later, officials held a media conference outside the mall to announce that the gunman was fatally shot.
Lieutenant General Kongcheep told Thai media the first person killed in the spree was the commanding officer of the 22nd Ammunition Battalion, where the suspect also served.
The gunman had fired at others at his base and took guns and ammunition before fleeing in an army Humvee.
City and neighbourhood police officers said the man fired shots as he drove to the mall.
The shooting mainly took place at Terminal 21 Korat, an airport-themed mall filled with colourful Lego sculptures, a marry go-round and huge replicas of landmarks from around the world.
Videos taken outside of the mall showed people diving for cover as shots were fired mid-afternoon on Saturday.
Many were killed outside the mall, some in cars and others walking.
