Three dead as severe storms hit New South Wales in Australia

Three people have died in New South Wales as powerful storms batter the Australian state.

The two men and a woman were found dead in Dungog north of Sydney, one of the worst affected areas, where homes have been washed away by flooding.

Some 215,000 homes are without power in Sydney and across New South Wales.

People have been urged to head home, as Australia's weather agency warned more severe weather would hit parts of the state on Tuesday night.

An uprooted tree fall on a parked car in the residential area of the western Sydney following an over night strong storm on 21 April 2015.

The SES has said that winds have been "cyclonic" in some areas

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) has issued a severe weather warning for the Sydney area, Hunter and Illawarra forecasting "damaging and locally destructive winds, damaging winds, heavy rainfall and damaging surf".

Winds of up to 135km/h (85 mph) were recorded in some areas, with up to 200mm of rainfall forecast for Tuesday.
