The driest place in North America became flooded this week when an atmospheric river storm drenched Death Valley National Park in California.
The storm dropped 1.5 inches of rainfall in just the four days between Sunday and Wednesday, rivaling the park's annual average rainfall amount of nearly 2 inches, according to the National Park Service.
This downpour prompted the closure of several park roads after flash flooding on Tuesday night. Debris had to be removed from some roads to reopen them, but some side roads remain closed due to storm damage.
Park visitors are encouraged to check the Death Valley National Park website for the most up-to-date road closures and conditions information.
Tornado touches down in Wisconsin, first recorded for the state in the month of February
From a road just south of U.S. Highway 14 in rural Rock County, Justin Schott's home and the home of his father-in-law next door appeared untouched by one of Wisconsin's first February tornadoes.
But just behind those homes — the site of their family crop farm established in the 1960s — the destruction the tornado had wrought was on display.
It had leveled a concrete silo, leaving rubble in its wake. It had torn a roof off another building. Some trees were ripped out of the ground, and branches from countless others lay scattered.
Thursday evening, as the clouds over the farm grew ominous, Schott sent his wife and two children into the basement. He stayed upstairs for a minute more, where the sky was so dark he couldn't make out a funnel cloud. As he headed downstairs, his ears popped and a whooshing sound began.
A king penguin has been filmed on a South Australia coastline, raising questions about why the bird is thousands of kilometres away from its usual sub-Antarctic habitat.
Jeff Campbell, the chair of Friends of Shorebirds South East, was part of a group of eight people doing a bird survey along the Coorong beach when they spotted the penguin. 'It came right up to us ... It put its head back and made a braying call, quite loud, then bowed to us,' he said.
There are about 120,000 king penguin pairs on Macquarie Island, which is about halfway between Tasmania and the Antarctic. Experts say the penguin may have got off track looking for somewhere to moult.
The ongoing "white and iron" dzud in Mongolia has reached a "critical" level, with over 90 per cent of the country facing high levels of risk from the unique weather phenomenon, UN agencies have reported.
About 190,000 herder households are struggling with inadequate feed, skyrocketing prices and heightened vulnerabilities, according to the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in Mongolia.
Herding and livestock have traditionally been integral to Mongolia's economy, culture and way of life. Estimates indicate that there are over 64 million livestock this winter season in Mongolia.
"The increasing severity of weather conditions further exacerbates the crisis, underscoring the urgent need for humanitarian assistance and sustainable solutions to support Mongolia's rural communities and traditional livelihoods," the Office said in an update this week.
This is the second year in a row that the country has faced these severe conditions. Last winter about 70 per cent of the country was affected.
