MELBOURNE — Authorities told townspeople in the southeast to flee homes with three days of supplies just before floodwaters breached levees Wednesday in the latest community swamped in a crisis that has devastated Australia's mining industry.

Up to 1,500 homes in Kerang, in the north of Victoria state, could be affected if the Lodden River rises any further. The flooding in Victoria follows weeks of massive flooding in northeastern Queensland, which left 30 people dead, swamped two-thirds of the giant state and paralyzed several mines.
