The Scale of the Fires in East Gippsland


For my friends who are not familiar with Australia, this map shows the extent of the fires in East Gippsland. The blue arrow shows where we are, and that we are for the moment safe, barring any major weather changes. Other areas have not benefited from the changed weather conditions and Evacuation orders are in place for many high country towns. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they make choices to flee or stay.

Black lines show where the fire has already burnt and the little black and white icons where fires are still burning today.

The icons explained:

I believe you would be able to monitor conditions via this link (if it is available outside AU) Vic Emergency Site


Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and messages!
