People stranded in Australia’s New South Wales

Thousands remain stranded in Australia’s New South Wales after historic floods swept through the Central West region earlier this week.

Dramatic nighttime video, filmed by Tim Roberts from the balcony of Molong’s Freemason Hotel, shows a shipping container and a large tank float past a submerged shop in fast-moving floodwaters along the Mitchell Highway, according to video posted on Storyful.

More than 3.5 inches of rain has fallen so far in Molong and Eugowra. Several Flood Warnings remain in effect around the region, including the Lachlan River, which was the scene of a dramatic spillover early Monday along its Wyangala Dam.

River is forecast to reach an all-time high crest

The river is forecast to reach an all-time high crest on Thursday after nearly 5 inches of rain fell within 24 hours in the region, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

New South Wales Emergency Service reports nearly 500 requests for help in a 24-hour period during the flooding event. More than 100 of those calls have involved plucking people from roofs of flooded homes, the Herald reported.

More rain is expected into the weekend across New South Wales, exacerbating the flooding, according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology.
