    Australia flood: Six missing following record rainfall



    Six people are missing after record rainfall caused floods in Australia's outback and forced the temporary closure of a famous national park
    .
    The six, including an infant, have not been heard from since Christmas Day.

    They are thought to have got stuck along a remote road in the state of Western Australia, acting Superintendent Brendan Muldoon said.

    The Christmas storm drenched the usually dry region, causing flash floods and turning the soil into mud.

    The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) described it as a twice-a-century weather event, creating waterfalls all over Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, a site sacred to indigenous people at the heart of the park in neighbouring Northern Territory.

    The conditions of the roads have meant police have been unable to find the missing family, and are now using helicopters to continue their search of the area, which has no mobile phone signal.

    Australia flood: Six found safe after record rainfall

    Six missing people have been found safe after record rainfall caused floods in Australia's outback.

    Northern Territory police had been "seriously concerned" for the group amid what meteorologists called a twice-a-century weather event.

    Four of the six were rescued by helicopter on Tuesday, while the remaining two were found on Wednesday.
