More than 1,500 people were killed after a 7.5 magnitude earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi last Friday, triggering a devastating ts unami.

Videos show apocalyptic scenes as the earth's soil moved like it was water, swallowing up everything in its path.

Nearly all of the deaths have been in the city of Palu, home to roughly 400,000 people.

Houses were reportedly swept away and entire families were reported missing following the tsunami, according to the Associated Press. The 20-foot tal l (6-meter) tsunami waves slammed at least two cities, disrupting communication and power to the area.

More than 70,000 other people have been left homeless.

Residents in Palu started a mass grave this week for health and religious reasons. Officials fear that the death toll will continue to climb as they go through rubble.

Typhoon Trami killed three, injured nearly 200 and left over one million people without power across Japan this week.

Trami made landfall near Tanabe City in Honshu's Wakayama Prefecture on Sunday evening at the strength of a Category 3 hurricane.

Winds over 100 mph (160 km/h) blasted the region. Hundreds of flights were canceled and train travel was severely impacted.

The typhoon prompted East Japan Railway to halt all train services in the Tokyo metropolitan area, according to the Japan Times. Some bullet and subway trains were also suspended causing travel chaos during the Monday morning commute.

Meanwhile in Calgary, Canada, unseasonable cold brought snow to the region.

Heavy snow fell early in the week, blanketing the region. A foot of snow was reported in some areas.

The snow caused travel chaos for the morning commute in Calgary as a burst of heavy snow brought around 7 cm (3 inches) of snow in just an hour.

Severe weather struck the northeastern United States at midweek, spawning a number of tornadoes and causing damage across the region.

The system soaked the Phoenix area, making Oct. 2 one of the top 10 wettest days in the city's history.

Roads were turned into rivers, stranding motorists and prompting officials to make high-water rescues.

Wet weath er also soaked parts of the Midwest this week, causing flooding in Manchester, Iowa and Grant County, Wisconsin.
