Thousands forced to evacuate homes in Australia's third city as river levels continue to rise.

    Brisbane, Australia's third-largest city, is bracing for massive flooding amid rising river levels and heavy rains.

    The Brisbane river is expected to rise 5.5 metres above its normal level by Thursday.
