Roads Are Closed, Bushfires All Around NSW & South Australia

in nature •  2 months ago 

Hi Everyone,

Today is the start of the holiday season in Sydney and unfortunately, the bushfire has turned for the worst today. Roads and major highways are closed with the government urging people to change holiday plans and stay away from the roads as it is a safer option. The weather in Sydney was as high as 40 degrees with nearly 50 degrees inland which have caused chaos for the firefighters trying to combat these bushfires. If you check the map below, most major roads out of Sydney have been closed.

The worst-hit today is at Lithgow close to the blue mountains where at least 20 homes have been lost. People's lives and their possessions have been wiped out in a few minutes. The city and most of the state was full of smoke for weeks and today's fire added to the damage. People are checking the RFS website around the clock to see if it is safe to drive to their holiday destination, are their homes are ok or are their family and friends are safe in the affect areas.

In South Australia, a man have saved a handful of koala's from the fire and put them in a safe place. We lost many koalas in these last few weeks it is a sigh of relief that some are saved during these hard times.

Let's hope the weather improves, wind dies down and have a bit of rainfall soon or else more danger will be those living in bushland and those fighting the fires.
