Pray for my brother, his family and all families in Melbourne.
I will never complain of being cold again
The toll is now 173 from Saturdays fires. The most amazing thing is when you see the pictures while the fires are still raging and changing direction without notice and townships are still under threat. The advice to people is: Be dressed in long natural clothing head to toe with glasses. If the fire and smoke is in your street or area it is too late. The safest place to be is in your home. Don’t expect any warning.
Don’t expect any help. You are on your own
The final number of deaths for Saturday fires are now closed, 72 still missing (hopefully some will come home) as of 2.30 am this morning(Tuesday 10th Feb 09 local to him).
