My heart and support goes out to those who have lost those things that they hold dear - family, friends, homes, communities. My thanks goes out to the members of the CFA and any other brave souls that have risked their lives to help and aid others during this natural disaster.
With many fires still out of control throughout country Victoria, winds still blowing hard and temperatures set to rise again, the fight still goes on. My best wishes go out to all those affected.
The excellent website The Big Picture at Boston.com never fails to deliver beautiful photos of current events, always breathtaking - these are heartbreaking and devastating.
