Nature's fury is making life miserable from one end of the US to the other, with people forced out of their homes by wildfires near both coasts and by major flooding in the Midwest.
In southern Georgia, a three-week-old fire has become the state's biggest in 50 years after charring 167 square miles of forest and swamp.
On the West Coast, a blaze which had covered more than 800 acres of the Hollywood Hills above Los Angeles appears to be under control.
In Florida, more than 200 fires charred a total of 125 square miles.
Elsewhere, a wildfire near the Canadian border in northeastern Minnesota had covered more than 34 square miles by Wednesday, destroying 45 buildings, including many luxury homes.
While much of the country battled blazes, major thunderstorms across the Midwest produced severe flooding.
