Strong winds and unprecedented torrential rains have triggered flash floods in Australia’s Northern Territories, forcing mass evacuations and sending waterfalls down the landmark Uluru/Ayers Rock sandstone formation.

The desert area witnessed some 23.2cm of rain within 24 hours after a storm reached the region on Christmas night, which brought the total amount of rainfall to 37.3cm in December, renewing a monthly record.
