Heart-throbbing scenes were witnessed in Sydney as it welcomed the New Year, 2019. The Australian city witnessed unprecedented fireworks to mark the end of 2018. The celebrations lasted for nearly an hour, as the fire-crackers which began bursting at 12am, continued an hour post the midnight.
Earlier in the day, city residents had feared a drenched New Year's eve as rainfall was reported in most parts of the city. The torrential rains, combined with periodic thunderstorms, had partially flooded the inland areas of Hunter and the Illawarra.
