The remains of a buried vintage car sit in a drought-affected property located in the Goolhi area on the outskirts of the north-western New South Wales town of Gunnedah, Australia, on October 3, 2019. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has declared the ongoing drought through the Murray Darling Basin to be the worst on record, with current conditions now exceeding the Federation Drought (1895-1903), the WWII drought (1937-1947) and the Millennium drought (1997-2009). The Federal and NSW Governments announced a new drought emergency funding plan on Sunday 13 October, with $1billion to go to water infrastructure for rural and regional communities impacted by the devastating drought in NSW. The plan will include a $650m upgrade of Wyangala Dam in the NSW central west and a $480m new Dungowan Dam near Tamworth. However, critics of the plan are calling for more immediate solutions.

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about absolute disaster people. In that spirit each night during the 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.)

Tonight we tried something a little different as these two stories both hail from right here in the U.S.A. But do the originate from the East Coast or the West Coast? Read on to find out:
