CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO WORSEN!!! With fires now threatening the outskirts of Sidney!
PLEASE ask God to protect our beloved Australians from the now one hundred ruinous bush fires now raging in New South Wales with threat to Sidney, air quality in Sidney and in Brisbane 450 miles away worse than Beijing, China! Fires are also burning in the state of Victoria.
Early December: Reports are coming in that five of the one hundred fires burning have joined together to form one giant inferno in an area north of Sidney. The size of the fire now encompasses an area as large as the City of Sidney itself which contains several million people!
This many fires burning had already made air quality conditions much worse for residents of the States of New South Wales and Queensland! Lives have been lost and homes destroyed with no end in sight following the worst drought conditions with little rainfall in three years causing extreme dried out conditions!
I listened in with Fiona Willie on ABC radio. Google abc.au. They were warning residents in some areas that it is no longer safe to leave and to protect themselves in their present location. Warning that a car is not a safe place during a fire, but if necessary to protect your life park your vehicle in an open area pointed towards the fire, get below the window level and cover yourself with a wool blanket until the sound of the fire has passed! This is STILL the reality of the present most serious situation.
From what I could see in the video reports dried up grass fires were burning throughout a large area driven by high winds hop-scotching from property to property causing a nightmare for residents just as this does in California with much loss of life and property!
Someone was warning “don’t be a ‘Sticky Beak’ by driving into the fire area to see what’s going on” please take this warning seriously. Haven’t heard that expression for a very long time since I was a boy living in Geelong, Victoria. My prayers are with you tonight Australia.
The State of Victoria is now burning in late November 2019.
