Papua New Guinea – Weeks of heavy rains and flooding have killed at least nine people in Papua New Guinea, with authorities warning more bad weather and devastation could be on the way. Near the capital Port Moresby, there have been unconfirmed reports of children being washed away by floodwaters, while further down the coast, high winds generated by Cyclone Penny – which hit northern Australia – have destroyed homes. Rising rivers have left many bridges unusable, stranding travellers. The storms have lashed the country’s southern coast since late December but have also caused problems in the north.

Israel – Heavy rains caused floods across Israel’s north on Monday, stranding two cars mid-stream and damaging property in several regions. Several roads were also blocked due to floods, including Route 90, a main artery that connects the southernmost city of Eilat and Kiryat Shmona in the very north. The Route 90 flooding also struck close to the northern city of Tiberias when the Arbel River overflowed due to heavy rain.

California, USA – The first of three Pacific storms barreled into the state Monday, closing roads, snarling traffic and drenching the striking teachers in Los Angeles. Flooding rain, yards of snow and mudslides are expected. Interstate 5, the main north-south highway in California, was closed Monday because of heavy snow, stranding cars and trucks. The storms were expected to bring several rounds of heavy rain, mountain snow, gusty winds, rough surf and possible flooding through the week, the National Weather Service said. Even worse, areas burned by last year’s devastating wildfires will be especially prone to mudslides.
