Victoria's Bushfires

I knew that the dreadful conditions on Saturday could mean more bushfires but I didn't imagine it would end up being Australia’s deadliest bushfire disaster. The death toll is at 84 and likely to increase and there have been over 750 homes lost.......devastating.



Fires are so scary! We lost a row of houses in our town last week. Fortunately, everyone got out of their homes in time. They lost everything, but the community is pulling together and donating items to get the families back on their feet. Hope those nasty fires in Australia get under control quickly. - Teresa

Thanks Teresa. It's just shocking, the toll has reached 173 and there are fires still burning with more towns under threat.
