A part of Australis’s state of Victoria has been covered with thick layers of cobweb. The area had received heavy rains and flooding last week forcing many residents to leave.  Other locals are still there without power in the state as authorities repair transformers and clear roads.

A video doing rounds on social media shows an entire area covered in massive spider webs. The spiders create these web sheets as part of a survival tactic known as ‘Ballooning’. In such events, spiders release silk strands to climb to higher ground.

This is not the first time when the cobwebs have taken over the region after heavy rainfall. A similar incents had occurred after the rains in Gippsland in 2013.
