This past week has been very intense weather-wise. From the cleanup from Hurricane Arthur to the incoming Typhoon in Japan, next week may be just as interesting. We collected some of the most outstanding images from social media to show the highlights of what has been happening around the globe. Enjoy~
SPAIN: an intense storm dropped over a foot of hail and caused significant damage.
PARAGUAY / RUSSIA / CHINA: Epic flooding from heavy rains.
BULGARIA: Still cleaning up from flooding they had a week previously.
CANADA: Heavy rain and hail in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Animal rescues made headlines when 2 brave men swam through high waters to rescue stranded foxes.
USA: Storms continue to batter the Plains and Midwest. Hurricane Arthur also wrecked havoc all along the East Coast, but it could have been much worse. Cloud formations as storms moved into Chicago and NYC were menacing.
Pets needed rescuing from some of the flood waters…
But despite some scary skies most cities in the US still managed to pull off a spectacular 4th of July firework show.
There were also some moments of epic beauty, although fleeting…from rainbows in NYC to noctilucent clouds in Norway.
Hope everyone in the US enjoyed their 4th of July. NSA was watching, to make sure you did.
