Australia

My heart goes out to those folks in the area of the Australian wild fires. The last I heard.....96 lives have been lost. It's summer in Australia right now and the temperatures are high and the terrain is dry. We've all seen how wild fires have ravaged the land here in the United States. It's got to be one of the most frightening things. Hopefully no more lives will be lost and those fighting the fires can get them under control.

They've been in a drought for so long I guess it is due to global warming?

Australia is such a beautiful country, but even five years ago, when I visited, there was much devestation back then as well as they had just been through a series of wildfires also. The land coming from the airport was totally burned out in many places, so very sad. I have many friends in Austrlia, my heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones and their homes.
