The Clean-Up Begins: See All the Shocking Pictures From the #SydneyStorm
Sydney, the Hunter Valley, Newcastle and their surrounding areas were smashed by near-cyclonic winds and heavy rain this week, leading to 12 local council areas being declared natural disaster zones and leaving over $100 million in damages behind. Eight people lost their lives in the storms (both directly and indirectly), over 4,500 people are cut-off and stuck in their homes, while thousands of houses are still without power in affected regions. The clean-up started Thursday as rain and winds eased, but it's expected to take weeks, if not months, to get the job done. Scroll to see some of the shocking pictures from the #SydneyStorm.
