Something like 170 lives have been lost. 5000 now homeless.

Extra thoughts and prayers...

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

Look for the video & slideshow

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.
