WAGGA WAGGA, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 07: Prime Minister Julia Gillard meets a local astronomer during a tour of the SES head quarters on March 7, 2012 in Wagga Wagga, Australia. 9000 evacuated residents are waiting for authorities to survey the city's levee to determine if it is safe to return home, after flood waters peaked at 10.6 metres - less than the 10.9 metre peak predicted. Residents on Monday were instructed to evacuate and the town was declared a disaster zone with authorities predicting floodwaters to reach a level that would likely break the levee, flood the cities central district, and cause the worst flooding in decades.
