People in southern California and Utah had to battle nature on Monday
Their enemy? Thousands of tumbleweeds.
Gusting winds sent the itchy, prickly, troops into a Victorville, California, neighbourhood, where they quickly piled up outside homes and filled back yards. People were trapped in their homes.
Although tumbleweeds are common in desert areas residents say this is one of the worst invasions they have seen yet.
