Wind and rain battered southeast Australia, toppling trees, cutting power and flooding certain areas, Wednesday, June 9.
There were no reports of serious injury.
About 220 homes threatened by a swollen creek were ordered to evacuate east of Melbourne.
Several major roads had been closed by floodwater, landslides and fallen trees.
Australia’s second most populous state had not been lashed by such weather conditions since 2008, according to officials. (AP)
