These have been raging for quite some time and today the 4,000 residents and tourists in Mallacoota in Victoria are standing on the beach – waiting on instructions to wade out to sea because all other options are not available. Can you imagine how horrifying that must be? The footage from there is hellish. A dark red sky at 9am with no signs of any let up.
There may well be people literally in the line of fire reading this. I really hope the ADF or others can get there in good time before more lives are lost.
