It was another wild week of weather in the United States, from raging fires in California to heavy snow in North Dakota. But there were several big weather stories across the globe as well. https://youtu.be/RhQFkqnUPvg   Super Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in eastern Japan. In addition to strong winds along the coast, waves crashed over a wall and onto a highway in Shizuoka. Hagibis was one of the most destructive storms to hit Japan in decades. The aftermath of the storm revealed widespread flooding. Several deaths have been reported related to the storm. Over in Lebanon, fierce wildfires raged in the Mount Lebanon mountain region. Some residents had to evacuate their homes in the middle of the night. Rain eventually moved through the area and helped to bring the some of the fires under control. Fires also impacted parts of Australia. A large grass fire burned close to the Darwin Airport. The region has seen several bushfires in recent weeks amid hot and dry weather conditions. It has also been so dry for so long in southeastern parts of the country. A flock of sheep kicked up a dust storm during feeding time as a result of the severe drought conditions. Most of New South Wales and Queensland have been abnormally dry since the start of 2017.
