A youth in an inflatable raft floated down Melbourne’s rain-swollen Yarra River on Saturday, December 2, following heavy rains in Victoria. “It was the second day of heavy rains,” uploader Jason Murhy told Storyful, “and despite non-stop warnings of the dangers of playing in flood waters, the young men of Melbourne were messing about in boats.” More than 43 mm of rain had fallen in Melbourne in the 24 hours between early Saturday and early Sunday, The Age reported. There were over 2700 emergency calls and 73 homes were flooded as a result of the wild weather. Credit: Jason Murphy via Storyful
