There have been some bad bushfires around my state yesterday and today. It's a bit different this time because one of them was over the hill from my parents' place where I'm staying and another big one wiped out 90% of the town that I used to live in so quite a few people I know have lost their homes and possibly died.

I took some photos of the smoke, and here's a comparison of today compared to last night.





Any of you guys had a big emergency like this happen to you or someone you know?

Nothing like that, but last year there was a huge explosion in Toronto. I saw it happen from about 3 or 4 blocks away and thought we were getting nuked lmfao.

Indeed. Gorbet you're not in the shit until the sky is golden yellow and it's literally raining ash. For two days, schools and many businesses shut down. Everyone would walk outside wearing a sweatshirt to protect from the ash and a mask to not breathe it. Basically I got a preview of 2012.

Dude, I heard a few things on the news this morning. A bunch of people have died in this brushfire that's been sweeping the country. They're considering mandatory residential evacuation.

They are saying now that over 200 people have died. But, a wee Koala bear was rescued. They named him Sam, I think.

not to mention some people you look at wrong would shank you, but yeh, i think the whole evacuate or stay and defend is stupid, i mean, in california there was a fire that was way bigger than this and had 7000 or so homes destroyed and only 20 something deaths, now thats sayin something.

Heard about the bushfires on news and from my uncle down in Melbourne. It's pretty bad down there due to the heatwaves; they've been having a drought for sometime now.

And the explosion in Toronto was maddening when I saw it on news. My jaws has dropped in amazement. It was a little scary I'll admit.
