Weather Map

January 4, 2013 weather map for Australia.  It's no wonder there are bush fires.

80 houses burned in the south of the State I live in. Where one of the main fires are it's approx. 300 km from Launceston.
People evacuated by boat as many roads are closed in the fire areas.  Only way out via the sea to safety.

A fire near Conara approx. 50 km from Launceston.  Tasmania. Photo of fire courtesy of the Examiner Newspaper.
