The toll of Australia’s flood catastrophe | Four Corners

Australia is in the grip of a flood emergency.

It’s already uprooted the lives of thousands of people, leaving many homeless, traumatised and uncertain about the future.

Four Corners travels to Lismore, Brisbane, Grantham and Western Sydney and meets families struggling with current and past flood events. They tell stories of despair, abandonment, and financial ruin. Many have lost everything, including hope.

We investigate whether decades of warnings have been ignored, and ask whether planning failures have deepened the crisis.

Experts say critical changes need to be made now, to make sure this misery isn’t repeated for future generations.
