Massively disseminated by the media and on social networks, the images of the fires ravaging Australia are impressive. Thus, a video shows a family having found refuge in their boat, in the middle of a desolate landscape. Images also show nearly 4,000 vacationers trapped on a beach. In the distance, a wall of fire advances in their direction.
Australia had its worst day since the start of the fire on Monday, December 30. “We saw over 200 fire starts all over the state yesterday“says Andrew Crisp, Commissioner of Emergency Management. Fanned by strong winds and temperatures above 40 ° C, the flames are dangerously close to big cities. In the suburbs of Sidney, the air becomes unbreathable and close 100,000 people have been evacuated near Melbourne.
