While much of the U.S. has been dealing with the typical spring severe weather impacts, a large portion of the Middle East and Asia has been grappling with unseasonably heavy rainfall that has triggered deadly flooding.

Meanwhile, Indonesia has had to evacuate residents after a major volcanic eruption. Here is a look at what is happening in this corner of the world.

Middle East Hit by Torrential Rain

Over 100 people have died across Pakistan, Afghanistan, and beyond over the past several days at the hands of severe weather.

At least 66 people were killed and 36 more injured in Afghanistan due to the heavy rain and torrential flooding.

In addition, the Ministry of Disaster Management said that about 600 animals died and over 1,200 homes were partially damaged or fully destroyed in the torrent of moisture.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Afghanistan confirmed earlier in the week that the flooding has affected over 1,200 families with 63,000 acres of land reportedly damaged.
