[Yahoo News}- This is what the world looks like when you live under the sea.

These amazing images were snapped in extreme conditions by talented photographers with a keen eye.

They all feature in the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2017 competition, which showcases the best images below the surface.

More than 4,500 photographs were submitted from 67 different countries.

The overall winner was French diver Gabriel Barathieu for his stunning photo of a hunting octopus.

It was taken in the lagoon of the tiny island of Mayotte in the Indian Ocean.

“I got as close as possible with a wide angle lens to create this image, which makes the octopus look huge.”

Nick Blake, from Dublin in Ireland, won British Underwater Photographer of the Year for his photo, Out of the Blue, taken in a freshwater sinkhole in Mexico.

Argentinian Horacio Martinez was named as Up and Coming Underwater Photographer of the Year for his image, Oceanic In The Sky, taken in Egypt and featuring a shark.

San Jose, a hub of Silicon Valley south of San Francisco on Tuesday declared a local emergency, as the fast-rising flood water caught residents from about 500 houses and apartments near Senter Road and Phelan Avenue by surprise where the water level from the creek reached the top of cars.

This week’s flooding in San Jose has been caused by the overflowing Anderson Reservoir near Morgan Hill.

This is the wettest winter in twenty years and after five years of drought, the overflowed Coyote Creek had flooded a San Jose neighbourhood of Rock Springs.

Electricity went out while trees were downed, as flood alerts were sent and evacuations were made.

The Coyote Creek was expected to surpass the highest flow rates ever recorded since 1950.

A commercial charter flight heading from Essendon Airport in Melbourne to King Island in the Bass Strait crashed in a “massive fireball” into a shopping center near the airport, shortly after takeoff killing all the five people on board.

The twin-engine aircraft which was owned by Myjet had been hired by Corporate and Leisure Travel.

None of the staff at the shopping center which was not yet open to the public was injured or killed.

News Corp has confirmed the identity of the pilot as an Australian man named Max Quartermain while the United States state department has confirmed to US network NBC in a statement that all of the four passengers were Americans. 

According to Sky News report, two of the four passengers are Greg Reynolds De Haven and Russell Munsch, as being named by their families on social media.

Police said that the plane had a “catastrophic engine failure” and was turning back to the airport before it crashed.

Both the Essendon airport and the DFO shopping centre are closed to allow for investigations.
