Devastation, utter devastation...


It has been a horrific weekend in Australia...fire has ravaged parts of our country. Whole townships have been obliterated.

There are upwards of 130 dead, the toll is expected to pass 200...

Many burned and perilously ill in hospital...

Large numbers of people still unaccounted for...

Please hold the families affected and (all volunteer) firefighting personnel close to your hearts.

Condolences can be left here...

It's a terribly sad day...

I couldn't believe it, watching the footage last night on the news. And they were reporting than some of the fires, were started, or re-started deliberately. Absolutely shocking and disgusting.
