This is something residents of Australia’s Northern Territory are not used to from December through February.

During the hottest months on the continent, rivers are usually dry. Due to heavy downpours, the Todd River and other creeks are flash flooding in Alice Springs.

In the southern portion of Australia’s Northern Territory the Todd River never flows and is dry during the summer months – December to February – summertime in the Southern Hemisphere.

This year, however, the Todd River and other waterways are flowing due to the heaviest rain falls in decades and flooding cities along their beds.

The unusual sight has led to some Alice Springs residents tubing down the river. One person has been killed.

Last year the Zin river was reborn in the Negev Desert in Israel.
