    A large number of spiderwebs blanketed an area in Australia’s Victoria state after recent floods.

    The spiders took refuge in fields and on road signs earlier this week near the town of Longford in Victoria state’s Gippsland region in a phenomenon known as ballooning earlier, local media reported.

    The spiders have since disappeared.

    Last week, some parts of the state saw wild weather that toppled trees, caused flooding and cut power to more than 200,000 homes.
