Flood warning for NSW; Australia to build hypersonic missiles; Zelenskyy details Russian atrocities in UN address

Mr Perrottet has admitted the state’s financial rescue packages are taking way too long to reach flood-hit residents.

Around 9000 residents whose homes have been severely damaged in the Northern Rivers have applied for financial help, but only hundreds have seen a cent so far.

“I mean, in anyone’s language, that is not good enough, is it?” Today host Allison Langdon put to the premier.

“No, it’s not,” Mr Perrottet replied.

“There is no doubt we have to do better.

“The turnaround times and the red tape in bureaucracy … is not good enough.”

Thousands of people lost their homes in the worst-hit areas around Lismore, and there are huge pressures on emergency housing.

Mr Perrottet was also asked why NSW was only offering $20,000 to flood victims, while Queensland was making $50,000 available to eligible applicants.
