We're in the middle of a cool change, which is good, but there are also strong winds that are not helping. And we're in for another heatwave this weekend. Despite all this, as far as I know, NSW has only lost ONE HOME, which is amazing. Tasmania on the other hand has not been so lucky.

There's a little tumblr post I've put together re: the bushfires. You can find it here.

Here's the text:
Guys, the bushfires happening here in Australia are so bad right now, and they’re not getting better. Here is some information so you can know what’s going on and also help. Please reblog and spread the word - we need all the help we can get.

Australia’s East Coast is still suffering horrifically from bushfires. I’m paraphrasing these from the Red Cross website, you can read more here.

NSW - the threat of bushfires remains high in my state. There are several areas that are still in the “catastrophic” rating. A map of the fires burning in New South Wales right now: here.

Tasmania - Thousands of people have been displaced, many losing their homes. There are still people missing, though at this point there are no confirmed deaths.

Victoria - Firefighters are fighting a 7070 ha blaze which is expected to continue for the rest of the week.

South Australia - There are several fires burning in South Australia, and they just went through a really bad heatwave like the rest of the south-east.

If you can, PLEASE DONATE. You can donate via the Red Cross to the Tasmanian Bushfires appeal here, as well as main Disaster Relief & Recovery here. If you don’t have the money, that’s okay - just spread the word! Post this on your facebook pages or just reblog here, and just let people know how they can help. Please.


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you have a tumblr reblog it! Or post it on your facebook wall, or you could even repost on livejournal or dreamwidth. I have no idea how to do that repost/boost the signal button thing, but you guys know what I mean. These people need all the help they can get. Even if you can't donate, just boost the signal. It would mean so much to me, to all of us.
