Australia – Amid rising floodwaters across the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia, Indigenous environmental groups have issued a fire warning. Heavy rain across the region has sparked flash floods, cutting off communities and knocking out communication lines, and even pushing tropical weather into the normally arid desert region. The heavy rains have already led to rampant vegetation growth, which will become fire fuel in the dry season.

Philippines – Heavy rains and floods continue to affect parts of northern Mindanao with eight towns in Agusan del Sur under a state of calamity Tuesday. The Agusan del Sur Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management council said the towns of San Luis, Esperanza, Loreto, Veruela, Bunawan, La Paz, Trento and Talacogon remain affected by severe flooding. Vehicles are still unable to pass through some roads in the town of Talacogon after the Agusan river overflowed. Provincial disaster officials say more than a hundred barangays in Agusan del Sur are flooded, with more than 30,000 families affected.
