Buschbrände verwüsten New South Wales

By Mike Tyler

December 17, 2019 - Temperaturen in großen Teilen von New South Wales in Australien werden Mittwoch voraussichtlich über 40Grad Celsius erreichen. Feuerwehren bekämpfen mehr als 120 Einzelfeuer in diesem Staat.

The fires have killed six people, destroyed more than 680 homes and burned nearly 3 million acres (1.2 million hectares) of bushland, Reuters said.

Bushfires are common in Australia’s hot, dry summers, but the ferocity and early arrival of the fires last month in the southern hemisphere spring is unprecedented. Experts have said climate change has left bushland extremely dry.
