From flooding across the Southeast to Hurricane Nicholas dumping heavy rain across Texas and Louisiana, the lower 48 has had a wild week of weather. Let’s catch you up on some headlines you might have missed: https://youtu.be/6fvX04JqipU   We start in southern France where it’s been a week of non-stop rain. In Agen, six feet of water stacked up after heavy rains drenched the community. Further east, some areas saw two months' worth of rain come down in just two hours inundating communities.  Authorities say they performed several water rescues including some by helicopter. Despite the record flooding, thankfully there were no reports of fatalities.  Out on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain is celebrating rainfall along the southern shores. Soaking storms helped firefighters get the devastating Costa Del Sol Fire under control and crews say this is the worst fire the region has seen in three decades.  Even with the help of the rain, the blaze forced thousands to evacuate and lead to the death of one firefighter.   You may have seen our continuing coverage of Hurricane Larry and Hurricane Olaf as they struck Canada and Mexico, but did you hear about Typhoon Chanthu?   The powerful storm has already dumped heavy rain across parts of China and even forced the closure of the world’s largest port as it swept by Shanghai.  Chanthu isn’t done just yet as it could still impact parts of South Korea and Japan.   Join us every week for the latest global headlines in Wild Weather Around the World.
