Just went to BBC website for news of this tragedy.
Destruction is widespread.

John:

I think this link might be a little more direct:

BBC Asia-Pacific

Also, BBC news doesn't use the "www".

Well,
What can I say?
I've just come back from over the ditch and I've slept for 22 hours straight.
You will never see devastation like this and on a scale like this, like I have recently seen,first hand.
200 people dead, quite a few more un-accounted for and at least 10,000 homeless.
These fires are still burning and they will continue to burn.
Bush-fires in Aussie are a naturally occurring thing, lightning often starts them, the nuisance factor started when people built houses amongst bush areas.

I went over there as a Fire-fighting Chopper pilot and to be honest, I won't be flying a chopper again anytime soon, it was just too hard on the grey matter, flying by instruments and radio messages through smoke most of the time.
