Australia's hairy panic grass – better known in Texas as tumbleweed – has invaded homes in Wangaratta, in northeast Victoria, piling up high almost as quickly as residents try to get rid of it.

The hairy panic has blocked doors, windows and piled as high as the roof at some homes, reported The Guardian. The tumbleweed has been blowing in from adjacent fields and authorities have told about 20 residents that there is little they can do about it.

Wangaratta resident Matt Thewlis posted several pictures of the Australian tumbleweed on Facebook.

"Hope the person who owns the out-of-control paddocks in our area gets notified to do something because this is a joke and the whole estate is sick of it," wrote a frustrated Thewlis on Facebook.

The tumbleweed, though, just keeps coming because of the extremely dry conditions in the rural town, reported Australia's 7 News. Some residents have seen the hairy panic fill their front and back yards on given days.

"It is frustrating," resident Jason Perna told 7 News. "You know that you've got a good couple of hours work ahead of you and that's always sort of displeasing."

Several Twitter users could not get over the pictures of the tumbleweed, along that it was actually called hairy panic grass.
