A record-breaking hurricane/typhoon season on both sides of the Pacific brought near-constant flooding to Mexico and Japan. Dozens of spectacular meteor fireballs - from the US to India and Europe to Latin America were caught on camera last month.

The now-familiar scene of vehicles being washed down city streets by raging torrents of water occurred this month in Montpelier, Genoa, and Athens. While there were fewer strong earthquakes than we've become used to in recent years, volcanic activity remains high, with Costa Rica's Turrialba Volcano erupting for the first time in 150 years, and Sakurajima Volcano in Japan sending an ash plume 4.5km high.
