Australia: Bushfires

Major bushfires are severely affecting parts of both New South Wales and Queensland. A State of Emergency has been declared by the New South Wales Premier for the next 7 days and a State of Fire Emergency has been declared across 42 Local Government Areas in Queensland. Many residents in the affected areas in both states have been issued a ‘leave immediately’ or ‘prepare to leave’ order. Catastrophic fire danger is now forecast for the Greater Sydney and Greater Hunter areas on Tuesday 12 November 2019, due to worsening weather conditions.
