Spiders Spin Webs Across Eastern Australia to Escape Flood Waters

Three Australian states have record-high summer rains over the past week, flooding rivers and forcing dams to overflow. Over 13,000 people were evacuated from their homes, Tuesday, as regions of eastern Australia are submerged in water. However, humans are not the only sufferers of flooding in Australia. Spiders have reportedly spun webs around trees, plants and bushes to escape flood waters.
