Two tornados lashed two different international locations on Wednesday.

One tornado touched down over 22 villages in Maheshpur, Bangladesh.

It was reported that one child was killed, and about 150 people were injured in the storm event.

Local sources reported that as many as 1,200 houses were damaged along with several acres of crops.

Maheshpur will see a continuance of a cold front coming out of mainland Asia, which is stirring up just enough moisture to trigger minor thunderstorms.

Aside from a thunderstorm threat, the rest of the week will remain dry.

Another tornado touched down on a north Queensland, Australia farm, with the owners of the farm standing by, catching dramatic video footage.

The twister destroyed corn fields and irrigation pipes along the farm, but missed hitting the family's home.

Northern Australia has seen a lot of rain, and the rain will continue into early next week as a cold front bringing thunderstorms moves through the region.

Conditions should dry out by Tuesday.
