Looks like a very bad bushfire has flared up in Western Victoria.  Houses are lost and many properties have been impacted.  

 

Locations that may be affected include Warrnambool, Ballarat, Geelong, Melbourne, Traralgon, Moe, Bairnsdale, Mt Buller and Mt Hotham.

Stay safe brothers and sisters!

I have friends there who have evacuated. One has lost his house. 

 

Oh dear! It's such a big area affected, I knew our brothers would have to be affected.  What area was your friend?

I had to cancel  travel today to Warrnambool from Grampians (Halls Gap)

 

Shame :(  That's such a lovely part of Vic to visit.  I just never get to go out of Melbourne when I head that way.  You ok?

I am ok ..but did not sleep all night due to heavy winds in Grampians (storm)

The weather is still weird, when I traveled back  I made sure to avoid any bush-fire areas

I should add that NSW also suffered a very destructive bushfire over the weekend too.  A bushfire in Tathra, near the southern coast town of Bega was badly affected - 69 homes at least lost.

No one so far has died from either state, thank goodness.

(the worst cyclone to hit Darwin in 30 years also happened - that's for another thread - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-19/tropical-cyclone-marcus-clean-up-continues/9561930).  Been a bad weekend.
