How Many States Touch The Pacific Ocean:

Mostly intense rains and record floods caused by the La Niña fact wreaked fresh havoc on communities in Australia and Brazil on Sunday.

In Australia, the inundation disaster moves one place to another to the far south. Dozens of towns braced for unparalleled stream levels in southern Victoria state, where 14,000 homes were sodden and 3,500 people had fled, days after the flood disaster pointed in northeastern Queens land.

Waist-high floodwaters inundated homes, leveling fences and foliage roads in Victoria, Australia’s second most crowded state.

A residential person Peter said “its shocking, heart-wrenching”. “It’s just total destruction, most of the shops mess in the water. All things are going to be destroyed.

If we will see diagonally the Pacific Ocean, Brazilians and other people who lived near the ocean prayed for losses of overwhelming floods near Rio de Janeiro.
