A tornado has ripped through Sydney causing serious damage. Australia's weather service said the thunderstorm that spawned the rare twister may have been the strongest on record in the state. It produced hailstones the size of golf balls.
High winds and heavy rain have hit northern parts of Germany, shutting down several train lines and killing at least two people. The adverse weather conditions followed several weeks of summery weather.
Tropical storms develop above the sea, need a certain water temperature and a low pressure area. For a natural disaster as devastating as Hurricane Harvey to occur, certain ingredients must come together.
Weakened but not finished, Harvey is dumping even more rain onto the state of Louisiana. Back in Texas, rescue work continues and residents have been evacuated as a heavily flooded chemical plant threatens to explode.
A weather system that moved across the Midwest and eastern US created damaging tornadoes and left massive flooding in its wake. The storms are moving into the Atlantic Ocean.
