I really don't know what to say Occy. The devastation from fire is just appalling.

That would be me.

Not much to say, I've just been venting all over the shop - as you know.

Death toll is rising as fire fighters get into remote areas

Have evacuations worked at all, or is it a question of not being able to reach people quickly enough due to the speed of it?

I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before, Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep.

Ill have to make it quick as I have to go to work. 106 dead at last count. Some dead because they tried to stay to fight, others just couldnt get away quickly enough - there were fire balls that decimated entire towns.

Probably a fool question since I'm so far away, but is there any way any of us can help? Will donations be needed eventually?

there's already plenty of funds etc going to people - red cross is probably your best bet OS. 8 staff off fighting for their houses, kids are stressed - those that have come to school. It's heartbreaking for all around

Smoke is pretty thick atm here - looks like they elected a new pope!

130 confirmed dead - could rise about 200 when they finally get into the isolated areas.

This is such terrible news.
It's all over the news here.
And to think they're suggesting that some of the fires were started on purpose, that's disgraceful. If they were I hope they get caught!
Nobody should be allowed to get away with it and blame it on the hot weather.

173 dead and rising. yes some of it is arson - hope those fuckers burn in hell.

So many sad stories - people losing loved ones who were standing right next to them, people not being able to save people and animals that were so close, people dying trying to run, people dying trying to fight. I know Im repetative but it's awful
