The NSW Bushfire Emergency | UPDATED

News regarding the NSW Bushfire Emergency.

There is reports that the conditions of the bushfires will ease on Tuesday in some parts of NSW. But this doesn’t mean the fires will stop, there’s more chance that it’ll go up again. View more info below:

We’re certainly hoping to see … conditions easing over the next 24 hours with more of an easterly influence, which will hopefully allow firefighters … to really get in, consolidate and establish some containment lines, Because we are expecting a return to another hot day, particularly Tuesday. We’re expecting to see temperatures climb into the high 30s or early 40s right across parts of NSW, so a lot of work ahead over the coming days, particularly in anticipation of what’s expected

URGENT UPDATE 5 DECEMBER 2019

There was blazes that were ripping through south coast communities over the past few nights as residents in Western Sydney braced for multiple infernos bearing down on their properties as the horror bushfire season continues to ravage the state.

Looking at the “Fires” Near Me” app, We can see that there has been up to 7 new emergency warnings for the fires, as it is now December (Summer time in Australia) – this means there will be more fires and the conditions will be worse.

With this being said, some Canadian firefighters are volunteering and are giving up Christmas with their families to fly out to Australia and help tackle the bushfire crisis.

Yesterday, at least one home was lost at Bawley Point, another was found razed to the ground in the 230,000-hectare Gospers Mountain blaze on Sydney’s northwestern fringe while it’s expected at least one home has been destroyed in a blaze burning west of Braidwood near Queanbeyan.
