Spiders Blanket Wagga Wagga, Australia After Flooding

Like a scene right out of "Arachnophobia," spiders have blanketed an Australian town with silk in an attempt to get to higher ground during flood season.

Intense flooding near the city of Wagga Wagga drove some 8,000 people from their homes last week, but it also sent millions of wolf spiders and their silk up trees, bushes and grassy fields, Discovery News reported.

The fleeing arachnids left a rare sight in their wake: an entire sea of silk -- and spiders -- covering local farms.

"It's all silver. It's like snow in the trees. ... It's all silk," Wagga Wagga resident Dennis Lane told ABC Sydney. "Just down the bottom of the hill from my place, the trees are covered in them. They're just all walking out of the water down the road. ... They were heading my way."

Wolf spiders, relatively harmless and common creepy-crawlies, can cast a single thread of silk to "balloon" themselves over long distances, according to Discovery News. Since millions of them cast their threads to escape the rising waters, it almost looks like they spun a giant web over the town -- but Discovery News notes that earlier reports that called them webs are inaccurate.

Worst flooding, Sydney Disorderly
SYDNEY - Heavy rain which flushed Australia, particularly the State of New South Wales (NSW), has not abated. Flooding which originally hit Wagga Wagga yesterday (8/3) from flooded Sydney within 460 miles to the northeast. The chaos engulfing the capital of New South Wales is. The government was forced to close dozens of roads and some rail lines.

According to Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABM), the rain that caused flooding in the most populous city in Australia that was the worst during the last five years. '' The rain is very heavy and the wind was blowing so hard,'' said David Barlow, a spokesman for ABM. He added that rainfall flushed the entire Sydney region today as the highest recorded since 2007.

The Sydney Morning Herald, Barlow said that the scale of rainfall gauges in the Observatory Hill pointing to the 109 millimeter. While the gauges at Lucas Heights, south of Sydney, pointing to the 134 millimeter. Not only heavy rain flushed the city of about 4.5 million people for a long time. '' Heavy rains hit Sydney for about 24 hours and ended around 09.00 this morning (yesterday),'' explained Barlow.

He attributed the condition that the annual La Nina phenomenon that almost always lead to disaster in Australia. Besides resulting in a decrease of seawater temperature, La Nina has always been synonymous with high winds. Until yesterday morning, heavy rain was still flushed most areas of Sydney. Floods also hit the city center. As a result, train and bus schedules into chaos. At least, 2,000 houses have no electricity due to blackouts in some areas.

'' This is the most severe disruption of transportation facilities in Sydney for 15 years,'' explained Duncan Gay, minister for roads and transportation NSW. '' We had to close many roads that previously we never close. Really extreme weather,'' he added.

Yesterday floods submerge almost all major roads in Sydney. There was no train or public transport would dare pass until late afternoon.

In addition to disrupt ground transportation, heavy rains and flooding disrupt flight schedules and shipping. Yesterday, the airport authority was forced to postpone and even cancel some flights. So also with the port. '' We are concerned that hundreds of boats and ships in Sydney Harbour will be submerged if the rain never let up,'' explained a spokesman for NSW Maritime.

Torrential rains and floods hit three states in eastern Australia this week. At least, two people were reported killed by the flood swept away after the car they are working hard across a flooded road. Apart from NSW, heavy rain and flooding hit the state of Queensland and Victoria. Stagnant water in most rural areas in Victoria is quite high. City residents Nathalia, north of Victoria, had to be evacuated from their homes.

Last year's floods in eastern Australia claimed over 30 lives and resulted in loss of EUR 6 billion (more than Rp 55 trillion). Minister of Finance (Finance Minister) Australia Wayne Swan can not ensure that the losses suffered by this time. However, he expects no less than EUR 1 billion (more than Rp 9 trillion).

In fact, he said, the floods have broad impact on the agricultural sector in NSW. '' We still do not know the damage to public infrastructure. Moreover, flooding is still soaking the streets,'' he said.

17,000 needed flood help in NSW

Almost 2000 homes have been flooded and more than 17,000 people have called for emergency assistance since towns and cities across NSW began their battle with floodwaters.

Of those calls, nearly 3500 people required assistance from NSW State Emergency Services (SES), with 155 needing to be rescued from floodwaters.

Narrandera, the latest victim of the flow of floodwaters through NSW, will likely be spared from extreme inundation, with the town's levee expected to hold up overnight.

One thousand people in the town remain on flood alert after being told to prepare for an emergency evacuation if the rising Murrumbidgee River breaches the levee.

"We don't expect they will need to move but it's better to have them ready just in case," a spokesman for the SES said.

The Murrumbidgee peaked at 8.99 metres on Thursday, a level the State Emergency Service (SES) said was close to the levee's safe operating height.

"An engineering assessment did find that the levee was likely to be sound but it's never 100 per cent," the SES spokesman said.

Another seven local government areas were declared natural disasters on Friday, bringing the total number of areas that can now benefit from flood assistance schemes to 46.

Residents of Forbes could breathe a sigh of relief on Thursday, after the Lachlan river, which was predicted to peak at 10.65 metres, hit just 10.55m.

The town, which had already experienced major flooding that split it in three, had been bracing for fresh floods on Thursday night.

"Certainly Iron Bridge is dropping in Forbes and that's a good indication that we're looking pretty good here at this stage," Forbes Mayor Phyllis Miller said on Friday.

Ms Miller said there was no clear indication of when evacuated residents would be able to return home.

Nearby residents in the Lachlan Shire Council were warned to boil all their water today after the council issued a bore water alert.

"Current flooding in the Lachlan River and Goobang Creek is resulting in high levels of turbidity and organic matter affecting the quality of water for consumers in Condobolin," the council website said.

More than 400,000 sandbags were distributed across NSW on Thursday to protect communities from floodwaters which will continue downstream over the coming weeks.

The SES is focusing for now on Narrandera and Griffith where 300sq km of water still covers the area.

But their attention will turn to downstream over the coming days and weeks, as Darlington Point, Carathool and Hay brace for their turn in the firing line.

The Bureau of Meteorology predicts Darlington Point to experience floodwaters on Sunday and Hay on March 21.

The NSW opposition accused Premier Barry O'Farrell of abandoning NSW in the midst of a flood crisis on Friday after he went ahead with a personal trip to the Northern Territory.

"It almost defies belief that at the same time 75 per cent of NSW is affected by flood, the premier is jetting off to Darwin to host a Liberal Party fundraiser," Opposition Leader John Robertson said.

But Mr O'Farrell defended his trip to Darwin, where he grew up, saying he would be in the NT for less than 24 hours on a personal visit.

Roads Minister Duncan Gay said on Friday the predicted damage bill would be more than $500 million, with April set to increase that figure.

"We have a damages bill at the moment that my guys are telling me is heading way north of $500 million," Mr Gay told ABC Radio.

The SES says the floodwaters will continue to move through towns for a month until they hit the Murray River.

"You're not going to see water reaching the Murray until sometime in April, so we've still got a month of this," an SES spokesman said.

But for SES, there is a positive side to the slow movement of water.

"It gives us lots and lots of planning time," the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, the SES says the flood situation for towns closer to Sydney is improving after heavy rain topped up the already full Hawkesbury and Nepean river systems.

A hundred residents in Bega were told to evacuate on Thursday night but were able to return home today after the SES issued an all-clear.
