Australian Tumbleweed Buries Homes

A fast-growing tumbleweed known as "hairy panic" took over a street in the Victorian rural town of Wangaratta, Australia on Wednesday, clogging homes and frustrating residents complaining of the clean-up time.

As winds pick up, the wild tumbleweed has covered properties, gardens and garages.
