Hundreds of Spiders Crawl on New South Wales Family's Garage to Escape Floods

Hundreds of spiders sought shelter in a family’s garage to escape from floodwaters in Macksville, New South Wales, on March 19.

Melanie Williams filmed this video that shows spiders crawling all over her neighbour’s garage before she received an evacuation order from flooding on early Saturday.

“Check these spiders out, on my god,” Williams said in the video.

Williams told Storyful that her house hadn’t been directly impacted by the floodwater and all the spiders had “all gone back to where ever they came from.”

The State Emergency Service urged residents to stay informed on March 22 as further rainfall in the area was expected to cause local rivers to rise. Credit: Melanie Williams via Storyful
