At least 22 people have died and more than 50 are missing elsewhere in Australia's northeastern state of Queensland since drenching rains that began in November sent swollen rivers spilling over their banks, inundating an area larger than France and Germany combined. Brisbane, the state capital with a population of 2 million, is the latest city to face down the waters.
