Nearly 100 people have been rescued from floodwaters in Sydney and New South Wales as powerful storms continue to lash Australia’s east coast.

Three elderly people were found dead on Tuesday in Dungog, north of Sydney, where homes have been washed away by flooding. Some 200,000 homes across the state are still without power on Wednesday.

Australia’s weather agency has warned of more heavy rain and high winds before conditions begin to ease.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) has said that gusts of 100km/h (62mph) are still possible along the coast and that thunderstorms could lead to flash flooding for parts of the Sydney area and Illawarra district.
