Tsunami-like flash floods raced toward Australia's third-largest city of Brisbane on Tuesday, prompting evacuations of thousands of residents from its outskirts, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
After a surging two-meter wall of water killed at least eight people overnight in the town of Toowoomba in west Brisbane, flood warning was issued for the financial district in Brisbane.
Australian authorities have also predicted that the death toll is likely to climb. Nearly 70 people have been reported missing after water gushed through Toowoomba.'
