Residents in outback Australia have been forced to drive hundreds of kilometres for basic groceries after a ‘once in a lifetime’ desert storm blocked off their communities.
One woman said she drove 330km from her home to Alice Springs to stock up on supplies at Coles only to find empty shelves and ‘food running out fast’.
The supply chain chaos was sparked by a ‘once in a lifetime’ desert storm this week which flooded the transcontinental freight line linking the Northern Territory and South Australia.
