The heatwave in Melbourne continued on Saturday (yesterday) with the weather over 46 degrees celsius…. the hottest day recorded in Melbourne- ever :O !! I think it was about 46.4 degrees in the city- that’s about 115.52 fahrenheit :O
It was bloody insane.
There were many bushfires all over Victoria (which is the state), some of which are still being controlled.
I’m reading the news and it says that 84 people have died in the blazes so far, which is a almost twice as many who died in the Ash Wednesday bushfires in 1983.
It is really terrible, there have been over 700 homes lost, and 550 of these was in one place alone, Kinglake. Some of these suburbs have been almost completely wiped out from these bushfires.
My thoughts go out to all the people suffering from these devastating events.
