Re: Forest Fire & Earthquake

My heart goes out to everyone affected in our area. Reminiscent of the big fire between Dalaman and Ortaca in 2013. Terrible to see the destruction caused by these wildfires. The helicopters carrying water started again at dawn. Just hope they and the fire services can contain it and the inhabitants of the area and animals are all safe.

Re: Forest Fire & Earthquake

Turns out it was started by a local plonker, who wanted to clean his land!!! He has been caught and will, hopefully, be severely punished.

I heard that the dogs from the shelter have been temporarily located to a basketball court in the area. Hope there is some shade for the poor blighters.

Re: Forest Fire & Earthquake

Reminiscent indeed!

Heard the helicopters and with the Pavlovian reaction developed from the 2013 blaze, when we were trapped in the house and watched the flames pass over and around us, destroying the garden, watering pipes, etc., ran out to see if the helicopters had large balloons of water underneath them. Yes! Oh dear. Saw the smoke clouds, checked the last minute news and checked "Ventusky". See the wind is not coming this way and feel a bit happier and after quıte a few hours it's brought under control, thankfully no harm to life or inhabited property.

Oh to be in Scotland (ah....not really....)

You know who aquired this land (I was going to say bought but.... ) about 4 years ago to build a Community Faith Centre.
This could be the first stage.
