Civilians are being assisted by Australian army defense members in the flooded Townsville, Australia suburb of Idalia on February 4, 2019. Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has warned Townsville residents that flooding has not yet reached its peak as torrential rain continues to fall. The continued inundation forced authorities to open the floodgates on the swollen Ross River Dam on Sunday night. (Photo by Ian Hitchcock/Getty Images)
