Bushfire threatens homes south of perth airport – with damage estimated at more than $2m


A blustery winter is on its way for many northern states, with many states at risk from bushfgospelhitzires.

A blizzard is expected to dump up to four metres of snow and create danger바카라ous driving conditions as it moves into the state this weekend, with more snow expected in western and southern parts of the state next week.

The forecast for Monday is for low temperatures, with the temperatures expected to fall into the mid-20s at most.

The Queensland bushfire watch has been issued for many areas this week and forecasters will be monitoring the situation in Brisbane, while the Southern Cross, the Queensland police national emergency number, and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) have confirmed they expect some form of bushfire activity in the south of the state.

“There have been some reports of fires, but the actual scale is difficult to confirm, but we expect a significant amount of smoke and flames,” said Queensland Police Service (QPS) regional manager Steve Breen.

“We’ve had a number of reports of tree fires across our state, but it’s important to remember that we’re not talking hundreds of trees or hectares.

“The bigger concern for our community is the fire danger. We understand that many people might be affected, but it’s important not to get too focused on just one place.”

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says it expects the worst impact of the blizzard.

“We’re in the midst of a devastating, serious bushfire season, with some regions across the state experiencing major bushfires,” NEMA Chief Information Officer David O’Leary said.

“It’s going to affect every part of Queensland and Queensland will need to deal with gospelhitzany fire danger as best it can.”

The agency will be in touch with the community to ensure people are aware of local bushfire risk before the blizzard hits.
