In Pictures: Storm creates havoc in New South Wales, Australia

SYDNEY (AFP) - Wild weather which has smashed into Australia’s east coast and whipped up giant waves on Sydney beaches has left at least three people dead and others missing, police said Monday (June 6) as the clean-up began. Ferocious storms pounded the coast over the weekend, causing flooding in New South Wales state while huge waves resulted in coastal erosion, in one instance sweeping away the in-ground swimming pool of a beachside home.
