Top 5 videos of the week: March 16

March 16, 2012 — It's time for our weekly recap of the best videos from the past seven days. Take a look at the top five videos that made the cut.

We get a lot of footage each week here at The Weather Network, so we decided to share our favourites with you. Here are the weather videos that had people talking in Canada and around the world this week.

  • #5 -- Punta Arenas, Chile: People in Chile were trapped in their cars as heavy rain caused a river to overflow. Many people were also asked to leave their homes.
  • #4 -- Sakurajima, Japan: Rocks the size of soccer balls flew out of this volcano and landed two kilometres away. This is one of Japan's most active volcanoes.
  • #3 -- St.Albert, AB: Verne shot about 20 minutes of the Aurora Borealis as he saw it in St.Albert, Alberta and sped it up in this video so you could really see the rippling waves.
  • #2 -- Dexter, Michigan: A slow moving storm produced this tornado in Dexter, Michigan on Thursday. Over a hundred homes were either damaged or destroyed.
  • #1 -- Toppenish, Washington: A dust storm near Toppenish, Washington shut down this highway for nearly five hours. Visibility was reduced to near-zero and several vehicles were involved in a pile-up.

Those are videos five through one for this week. Don't forget to tune in to The Weather Network on TV every Friday morning for our weekly roundup of the top weather videos of the week. The Weather Network's 'Top 5 Weather Videos' segment is created by B.J. Stewart.
