STORYLINE: Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said on Wednesday "long-term solutions" were needed for his country as its most populous city deals with flooding. Floodwaters had inundated or were threatening the homes of 85,000 people around Sydney as rivers started to recede and the heavy rains tracked north of Australia's largest city. Speaking in Sydney, Albanese said the fourth major flood event across the city and its surrounds since March last year that followed devastating wildfires in the same region during the 2019-2020 Southern Hemisphere summer were evidence of the need for climate action. While rain was easing across Sydney, several waterways including the Hawkesbury-Nepean rivers system on Sydney's northern and western fringes remained at major flood levels.   New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet, who spoke alongside Albanese, said evacuation orders and official warnings to prepare to abandon homes were given to 85,000 people by Wednesday, up from 50,000 on Tuesday. On the fifth day of the flood emergency, Perrottet warned that homes that remained dry during previous floods could be inundated this week. Federal funding would be available to flood victims from Thursday, less than two days after a disaster was declared in 23 local government areas, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said. ========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: [email protected] Subscribe for more Breaking News: http://smarturl.it/AssociatedPress Website: https://apnews.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP Facebook: https://facebook.com/APNews Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ ​ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/10553c84c5b84057abb411e4bc4acc87
