Sydney, Australia – A sudden storm hit the city and surrounding suburbs on Tuesday leaving thousands of homes without power, more than a dozen people trapped in their cars in floodwaters, and others stuck due to closed roads. Light rail lines were suspended, flights were delayed and murder trials were interrupted when the Supreme Court building in the CBD was evacuated as water streamed down internal stairs. Almost half the average rainfall for February hit Sydney on Tuesday. There are fears a home may completely collapse following wild weather in Sydney today, which also prompted the evacuation of 100 people from an apartment block.
