This flash flood is expected to hit the southern region of Australia, with no indication of whether the rains will move or suddenly stop. The flash flood, however, has affected The Australian Reptile Park the most as the rain turned roads into rivers and the staffs tried to restrain the alligators in their enclosure from escaping.

The zookeepers brought their koalas to safety as the cleaning process progressed. They added, “We had to close the park for clean-up due to the much-needed rain causing heavy flash floods we haven’t seen in 15 years!”

The water level rose beyond the gate of the alligator’s enclosure, causing the park to station a few staffs at the enclosure to monitor the alligators and restrain them from escaping.
