Freak Weather Forces Waterfall to Flow Upwards

Extreme weather has been battering Australia this week.
Winds have become so strong that waterfalls have been blown upwards.
The strong winds, which are seriously affecting the waterways of southern Australia, have gone up to 75mph.

Extreme: Winds in southern Australia are so strong that even waterfalls have been affected:

Earlier this week, Sydney saw a month's worth of rain falling in just one day, according to the BBC.
Although the ferries which hundreds of commuters rely on have kept running, they have provided rocky rides for those brave enough to keep travelling on them.
Waves have reached 5m off the area's coast.

These winds are part of a pattern of unusual weather throughout the Australian winter:

These winds are the latest in a long-running bout of extreme weather in Australia, where 25 people died in floods which raged throughout the winter.
John Magrath, a climate change researcher at Oxfam, said: 'The Earth is delivering a message to us.
'And the message is that more extreme weather is becoming the norm rather than the exception.'

I don't think the water is flowing upwards, so much as being blown off the surface of the water but the high winds into a mist.
