Upward-Flowing Waterfalls: Strong Winds Batter Southern Australia (VIDEO)

No, these upward-flowing waterfalls have nothing to do with things working the opposite way in the Southern Hemisphere.

Apparently Southern Australia's weather is getting a bit out of control.

These waterfalls aren't flowing upward because of some odd gravitational mishap, but are instead being forced up by extreme winds. According to the BBC, the winds have reached speeds of up to 75 mph, easily lifting spray from the falls into the air, and even causing passenger ferries in the area to be diverted.

The falls, south of Sydney, are being fed by a month's worth of rain that has been falling on the city over the past 24 hours.

Record weather has been seen around the globe this year, from heavy rains to heat waves. In June, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change announced that they planned to study the link between climate change and extreme weather events. Do upward-flowing waterfalls count?

And we thought moonbows were the craziest thing to watch this month.
