Australia's worst natural disaster

before last weekend i had visions of bushfires as people standing on their houses with a hose trying to save their posessions.
i have now heard stories and seen photos and footage of 'tsunami like fire waves' 50 metres high rapidly decimating anything in their path.
photos above of what can only been described as the aftermath of a 'nuclear strike'.

a workmates' brother heard a roar in the distance to see a massive firewall rapidly approaching.
luckily he just had time to get him and his family in the car and out of harms way.
many others weren't so fortunate.
the death toll is currently 181 with many others missing presumed dead.
my thoughts are with those victims, their families and the people with the grim responsibility of fighting the fires and dealing with the aftermath.
needless to say for many reasons the AAWT has been postponed.
