Precipitation fell so forcefully and in such great volume that numerous waterfalls formed on Ayers Rock, the locale's main attraction, notes the Sydney Morning Herald.

Flooding also became a serious problem, with some roads being covered by up to nearly 16 inches of water.

According to the BBC, "Flash floods in the remote town of Kintore forced the evacuation of dozens of residents."

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology described the Northern Territory storm as the sort of weather event that occurs twice in a century.

The front is expected to move into South Australia on Tuesday.
