Thinking of Australia

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/australi...MTayBLeuSkwtpw

Australia is facing an unprecedented national crisis, as bushfires tear through rural communities across the nation. Since September, at least 20 people have died and over 1,500 homes have been destroyed. Another 28 people have been confirmed missing after bushfires tore through busy tourist hubs in eastern Victoria at the turn of the new year. The scale of the threat is immense, and fires continue to burn, with authorities calling for people to evacuate their homes as the country braces for another weekend of catastrophic danger.

Australians caught up in the crisis are taking to social media and pleading for help. Entire towns have been flattened as fires snaked through bushland, across highways and up mountains. In New South Wales and Victoria, the most populous states in the country, people tried to outrun the blaze and highways were clogged with cars. In major cities, such as Sydney and Melbourne, a dense smoke has descended over busy metropolitan areas like a blanket. Some regions of the country recorded air quality measurements 20 times above the hazardous level.

Re: Thinking of Australia

A terrible situation for the Aussies. I think they’ve pulled Kyles ad off the TV about holidaying there.

Re: Thinking of Australia

It sounds absolutely awful. Let us all hope that the authorities and services are able to come to grips with the situation soon.

Re: Thinking of Australia

Since bushfire season began in August 2019 in Australia, nearly 6 million hectares of land has been destroyed.
Blazes sparked by hot, dry weather and assisted by strong winds have torn through nearly every state in the country.
The death toll is at 19 people and dozens are still missing.

Thousands of homes and buildings have been lost, cars gutted, and farms and livelihoods destroyed.
Collectively, an estimated area of 5.9 million hectares - which takes in bushland, national parks, as well as towns and cities - has been ravaged by the fires.

This figure includes the fires currently burning, plus the regions already burned.
If the total area of land destroyed is added together, the size of the affected area is larger than the whole of Belgium.

When compared to London, the total area hit by the bushfires covers from Birmingham in the north-west all the way to Hastings on the south-east coast.
The damage zone dwarfs Singapore in a comparison.
One single fire, the Gospers Mountain mega-blaze which hit NSW, was approximately seven times the size of Singapore.

In New South Wales alone, more than 4 million hectares of land is on fire or has been burnt. This is more than four times the size of the fires which ripped through Brazil's Amazon rainforest last year.
It is estimated 500 million animals have died in the fires. This includes many species native to Australia such as koalas and kangaroos, and there are fears entire species have been wiped out.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated from cities and towns in New South Wales and Victoria ahead of worsening conditions this weekend.
Australia is just one month in to summer.
The season ahead is expected to bring more devastation.

Re: Thinking of Australia

The prediction (BOM= Bureau of Meteorology)



"There will be no relief for drought-ravaged regions over the summer, with Bureau of Meteorology officials telling a meeting of state and federal ministers there would be no significant rain until at least April."

The reality.


Conclusion.

1 The BOM is so incompetent that they haven't a clue, or
2 They are lying to everyone.

Re: Thinking of Australia

Perhaps this country could divert some foreign aid there. Really needed there I reckon.

Agreed, at least we, the tax payer could see where the money is going and for a good cause too.

Re: Thinking of Australia

Much needed rain and golf ball size hail has now fallen and put out some of the fires. What a relief in some areas. Thoughts are with them.

Re: Thinking of Australia

According to all the Australian weather experts, there would be no appreciable rain until April...

It has been raining very heavily for over a week in most parts of Australia and it is set to continue.
