This is currently what is going on in my state. The bushfires are out of control & all efforts to control them are failing. Over 77 fire crews are working their asses off to save properties & lives, but it’s not working.
I almost had to drive past all these fires today, but I chickened out. I didn’t want to get stranded (which is possible, many cars have been). These fires are everywhere & so many roads are blocked off. A small town has been burnt down completely. It no longer exists.
Just when it couldn’t get any worse, there was lightning this morning… which caused more fires.
Thousands of people are stranded. I don’t know anyone personally who has suffered such a loss, but my thoughts & prayers are with them. I especially feel sorry for the animals who lost their habitat & have been trapped by the fires <3
Edit: The fires have gotten so bad, the smoke is making its way over my city, Devonport. Which is a fair drive away from these fires. That goes to show how terrible they are :(
Thinking of all those affected by this. My home state, everyone will know someone who is affected
