Major bushfires have been severely affecting a number of states across Australia. State of Emergency declarations are being announced as needed by Premiers, as temperatures and winds continue to create challenges for the emergency services.
Residents in the affected areas in many states have been issued a ‘leave immediately’ or ‘prepare to leave’ order. Severe bushfires are likely to continue to occur throughout Australia during the summer period. If you’re in or near an affected area, stay safe and follow the advice of local authorities.
