Gippsland, Australia

Residents of East Gippsland in Victoria are facing one of the biggest floods in years, as a big low pressure system dumps rain from Mallacoota through to the Latrobe Valley.
The weather bureau is predicting rain tallies up to 200 millimetres of rain and driving snow in the high country.
The bureau is warning wind gusts of more than 50 knots (close to 100 kilometres an hour) are expected from Mallacoota through to Wilson's Promontory.
Heavy rain is expected to fall for the rest of the day.
Janice Fowler, at the coastal resort of Loch Sport, says her seaside home is being battered by the gale.
"I'm sitting on a chair looking out the window I have never seen any ocean so rough," she said.
"I'm 155 metres from the water and it is horrific today - white water nearly as far as you can see - absolutely horrific."
