It's absolutely terrible and so frightening. Everyone should say a prayer for our country folk tonight. Many of them may not have a home after the weekend.

So sorry to read about these raging fires, and I hope they subside soon. I will certainly say a prayer Miss-M.

How terrifying! It is frightening how quickly fire spreads. Hope people get out OK, and I dread to think of the wildlife suffering.

That sat pic is amazing Kazzzz - visibility in the Sale / Bairnsdale region must be nil.

I hope it's not as bad down there today as the media & government is predicting. You guys don't live near bushland, do you?

I woke up this morning, the air is a browny red, the sky is not at all visible and you can barely breathe outside for the smoke.. The poor firefighters and homeowners battling in the thick of it, it must be horrendous.
Yes Ellerd, Missy and I both live in fairly bushy areas.

Is there any improvement in the situation out there?
 
Re: Bushfires in Australia by kazzzz on 10 December 2006 2:07am
 
No Ken, the wind is pushing the fires south now, and the heat is extreme , firefighters have been flown in from NZ coz ours are pretty exhausted.
