Incredibly awful down here. Ordinarily fire season just starting but we have fires in ordinarily wet rainforests, millions of hectares of land – farming and national parks. People dead towns gone and the long term impact on our native flora and fauna makes me shudder when I think about it.
Melbourne is shrouded in smoke and Canberra has had the worst air on the globe recently. I am currently in South Gippsland which adjoins East Gippsland but given the size of Oz it is a fair way away.
To any Afterworders in the line of fire may you and your loved ones be safe.
ABC news 24 has pretty much constant coverage for those interested.
