Floods inundate homes as rain drenches Sydney

STORY: Relentless rain flooded several suburbs in Australia's largest city, with officials warning of more wild weather to come.

An intense low-pressure system off Australia's east coast is forecast to bring more heavy rain through Monday across New South Wales after several places in the state were hit with about a month's rain over the weekend.

With about 30,000 residents in New South Wales state facing evacuation, frustration swelled in several suburbs in Sydney's west after floods submerged homes, farms and bridges there, some for the third time this year.

No loss of lives has been reported so far as officials urged people to leave their homes when ordered and avoid driving on flooded roads.
