The fires are mostly covering the less-populated part of the island at the moment, though I don’t know where Eric lives. Hopefully he is on the east.
It is a horror day here today for fires, with incredible temperatures (hottest ever day recorded here in Canberra, 49 degrees Celsius in western Sydney) and now high winds. Long and scary summer ahead.
Awww.... I get a lump in my throat thinking of these fires. So devastating. Four or five times more forest burned than in the Amazon fires.
The best reports I'm getting are from a member of this forum. Safely tucked away herself, but letting us know of the latest news from the East Coast of Oz.
Sry, Lindy, that I can't remember your nickname in here, but many thanks for the updates.
