BRISBANE, Australia  — Deadly floodwaters that have cut a swath across northeast Australia seeped onto the streets of the nation's third-largest city Wednesday, forcing people to flee both suburbs and skyscrapers.

City Mayor Campbell Newman said almost 20,000 homes in low-lying areas of the city of about 2 million were expected to be swamped by the time the river system it is built on reaches its expected peak Thursday. The figures were constantly being revised as the threat became clearer — and it was getting consistently worse.
