Mining equipment is submerged under flood water on Jan. 6, 2011 in Rockhampton, Australia. Floodwaters peaked Wednesday in the central Queensland city. Water levels are expected to remain high for at least a week, preventing residents from returning to their homes. The Queensland flood crisis has resulted in ten deaths and affected more than 200,000 people across an area as large as France and Germany combined.
