Australia's floods yet to peak

Australian military aircraft are ferrying more supplies to a flood-hit city in Queensland as river levels continue to rise.

The Fitzroy River at Rockhampton is due to peak early on Wednesday, leading to the evacuation of hundreds of homes.

Rockhampton's Mayor Brad Carter said people have rallied together with "true Aussie spirit" and are working cooperatively with emergency services personnel.
