Cyclones, Floods & Fires

Posted on the 06 February 2011 by Seabee
Mother Nature is dominating the news here in Oz, showing that we're a real land of extremes.
As I said yesterday, in Sydney we've had a record hot spell.
Overnight was as uncomfortable as predicted, it was still 30C at midnight and humidity up in the ninety percent area.
Then a southerly buster came through with a thunderstorm at 3pm today and at 5pm we were at 20C.
Up in far North Queensland they're counting the $billions of damage after Cyclone Yasi.

 In Victoria they're battleing huge floods across a lot of the state, with extensive stock losses and damage.

And right now over in Western Australia out-of-control bushfires are raging through suburbs of Perth.

The current situation is that 20 homes have been destroyed, mass evacuations are under way and firefighters are deperately trying to defend houses.
Monday Update
The Perth fires are still out of control, with 59 homes destroyed and 28 damaged.
