Extreme flooding has caused havoc across Sydney and New South Wales.

About 18,000 Australians have been evacuated from their homes in what has been described as a 1 in 100 year event.

Swollen rivers have cut off roads and bridges and forced about 150 schools to shut on Monday.

The Hawkesbury and Nepean rivers – which border Sydney to the north and west – reached higher levels for the last 50 years.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has offered funds for those people who have been forced to leave their homes.
