A massive air rescue operation in the city of Bundaberg, Queensland has been completed, Australia's Broadcasting Corporation reports.
Rising floodwaters had left many people stranded after a cyclone brought heavy rain.

About 1,000 people were airlifted in North Bundaberg to safety.
I understand that the last rescue was being undertaken there, but those choppers will continue to fly over just to make sure that nobody's been missed.
