Perth Bushfires - Feb 2011

It has been terrible in Australia. While one side of the country has been battling cyclones and floods, the other side has been battling bush fires fanned by heat and strong winds from cyclone Yasi.
There is information about the fires here.



The count is now at least 70 homes burnt and 30 plus damaged. People have been so generous with immediate relief, so they don't need food or clothing, but the Lord Mayor of Perth has started a relief fund for donations to help recover.

There is also some information on the City of Armadale website.

  1. I had no idea that many homes had been burnt or damaged. My heart goes out to all of the people affected. I would hate to find out if some of the fires were deliberately lit.
