A week after the Tasmanian bushfire, which destroyed more than 100 homes, the east coast of Australia was hit by tropical cyclone Oswald. The high wind and torrential rain resulted in surging floodwater and these deadly floods affected about 7, 500 residents according to Queensland Police Minister, Jack Dempsey. Just a week before, Sydney also experienced its hottest day in history, hitting a new high of 45.8 degree Celsius.
The extreme weather has affected the lives of the Australians as well as the farmers. Australia has been known for its self-sustainable food sources and green agricultural methods. However, with the dramatic changes in the climate, many are worried about the export-oriented food production. Farmlands including cattle and sheep are also destroyed in the bushfires which swept through New South Wales.
