Not looking good!
Haha. Though the radio comms has been saying that conditions have been easing off.
Today could have been a lot worse.
Chain 'em to an RFS truck.Another day helping the afp with road blocks, door knocking and getting ready for evacuation. A couple of the lads got involved with catching some crooks too.
Coppers said they’ve had a few trouble makers heading south trying to pinch shit.
Looks as though most of the section between Bredbo and Colinton on the EAST of the highway has been limited in spread.
However EAST of Colinton a few kms and a little NORTH from there are a few large spot fires that are active all around.
Looks to be the main area that has been knocked down is along the highway from Bredbo up toward Michelago. The rest of the fire looks to still have active on most of the perimeter
Haven't been following closely. Not very familiar with area, so very high level - plenty of work, plenty of fire from what I can see. Looks similar to a lot of the big jobs this season in that it's burning large areas of bushland, with communities squeezed in between, where they seem to be focusing the work.Any news of Rocky PLains / Wyndham / New Buildings?
And then this just came out. Watch and ActAny news of Rocky PLains / Wyndham / New Buildings?
Ta. A mate has a shack there, and a friend of my +1 has a place there (both Rocky Hall). If they survived the weekend, today may come through.And then this just came out. Watch and Act
- The Big Jack Mountain fire is burning north of Rocky Hall.
- Today we are seeing windy conditions, with Very High fire danger forecast for the area.
- These conditions are increasing fire activity and will make it challenging for firefighters to slow the spread of fire.
- There are a number of other fires burning in the area.
Looking at the satellite image, the SW boundary are along a major ridge line, Kelly, gudgenby, east side of Naas creek. Fire burning up the lee slopes.interesting to note that SW'ly fire front is still V active against the WSW flow.
Speculatively, it must be sitting under exposed ridgelines, on face value.
