The morning of Monday 9th of Feb there are 114 people confirmed deceased due to the fires in Victoria and numbers are rising. Due to the act of a selfish 19 year old boy who might I add is/was a volunteer cfa fire fighter, (this is only for the gippsland fires) people have not only lost there homes and worldly possessions but innocent people have lots their lives. Some of the confirmed dead are News reader and his family, adults, children, grandparents, aunts and uncles. It is sad that one person can cause so much destruction to so many communities.
for the last two weeks we Victorians have endured 40 plus degree days, the scale of destruction is incomprehensible however it could be much worse due to fire bugs, we had more fires very close to home in seaford, langwarrin, carrum downs, lyndhurst, hampton park, pakenham, whittlesea, as well as gippsland and the dandenongs (for those who know victoria well).
There is not much more to say other than we can only hope those who perished did not suffer and those who are left unite to help those in need.
God bless our firefighters, police, ambulance officers, emergancy relief, and volunteers and for all the families who have lost relatives and God bless those who have passed!
