Residents were evacuated across the region as MidCoast Council mayor David West said ''panic levels were at an all-time high'' and warning said ''lives are at risk''. More than 50 bushfires flared up due to dry conditions, hot temperatures and strong winds which have fanned the flames. Several other areas along the Sunshine Coast of Queensland were also affected with residents being evacuated. Officials warned that people's ''lives are at risk'' if they are near the blazes. "If you are near these fires, your life is at risk and you need to take action to protect your life. Stay up to date on bush fires in your area through the NSW RFS website, the Fires Near Me NSW Smartphone application, local radio, and social media," said a warning from The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS).

STORYLINE:

Sections of Port Macquarie in New South Wales were evacuated as several fires threatened the town on November 8. The encroaching fires turned the sky red, as the Sydney Morning Herald reported there were 82 fires burning in the state. Of those, the Herald said, 16 were rated as “emergency level fires.” Taree and other north coast areas were also under evacuation orders. The New South Wales Rural Fire Service confirmed an unknown number of homes and other buildings had been destroyed. The Daily Telegraph said there were fears for people who were trapped in their homes. The fires saw the Pacific Highway closed between Taree and Bulahdelah, and at Port Macquarie between the Oxley Highway and Hastings River Drive. The fires left the skies above Port Macquarie a reddish-orange, prompting a number of residents to film the eerie scene. Local woman Eliza Tetley captured footage here on November 8 and told Storyful it was filmed when the fire was “about 6 km away.” She said the sky started “going red” at midday, “but there was smoke and burnt leaves falling all day.” Several evacuation centers were set up, according to the New South Wales Police.

Bush fires continued to burn through parts of South Australia on Friday night and Saturday morning.

Local resident Jackie Wood filmed some aerial footage of the Adelaide Hill fire on Friday evening while flying in a commercial plane.

Local emergency services confirmed on Saturday that one person was dead near Charleston in the Adelaide Hills.

On Friday, a 24-year-old Queensland man died in a car crash which sparked a bushfire near Lameroo in the state's east.

So far, 23 firefighters have been injured and 29 members of the public transported by ambulance.

More than 40000 hectares burnt across South Australia, 25000 in the Adelaide hills.

No fires are at emergency level as of Saturday morning.

Fifteen homes, 28 buildings and 16 vehicles have been destroyed so far and there has been very significant losses in terms of livestock, animals, crops and vineyards according to emergency services.

1500 firefighters have been deployed in the past 24 hours.

Local Police believe the Adelaide Hills fire was started by a tree falling into powerlines.

A picture taken from the International Space Station shows smoke stretching from the edge of Eastern Australia over the Pacific Ocean.

About 60 fires were burning around New South Wales on Thursday morning, with 27 uncontained while being battled by more than 1,000 firefighters, the Rural Fire Service said.

A body was found late Wednesday in a scorched forest near the town of Kempsey in northeast New South Wales, police said.

He is suspected to be a 58-year-old man who lived in a nearby shed and had not been seen since Friday when ferocious wildfires across New South Wales killed three other people and destroyed at least 150 homes.

STORYLINE:

A couple gave a badly injured koala a bottle of water at the base of a burned-out tree in the Old Bar bushfire zone on November 12. Colin and Kristen Lucas were walking along one of their favourite local bush tracks when they discovered the koala sitting in the ashes. “I ran home and grabbed two towels, a bag, and a bottle of water for the little guy,” Colin told Storyful. “My neighbours, Garry and Debbie, saw me, and we all jumped into their ute and went back to help the koala.” Kristen is seen in the video offering the koala water and saying, “It’s OK, it’s OK,” while Colin asks, “You alright little fella? Oh mate, you’re badly burnt aren’t you.” The koala was placed in a washing basket and driven back to the couple’s home before a volunteer from Koalas in Care took the animal. “Mandy Penhall from Koalas in Care has been giving us updates. He’s still going strong and hanging in there. He’s a fighter,” Colin said. As of November 14, 74 fires were still reported to be burning across New South Wales, 50 of which were yet to be contained. The national death toll from the catastrophic event has risen to four as firefighters battled blazes across two states. Credit: Colin Lucas via Storyful

FIREMAN GIVES THIRSTY KOALA A DRINK OF WATER

A firefighter helped a thirsty koala drink water from a bottle on Sunday (22 DECEMBER 2019) in South Australia while fires continued to rage in the region.

The koala appeared in Cudlee Creek, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Adelaide, before the fire came through while the firefighters were there.

Authorities confirmed Saturday that one person died and 15 homes were destroyed in South Australia as a wildfire ravaged the Adelaide Hills on Friday.

Another person was critically injured after fighting to save his home from the fires.  

The annual Australian fire season, which peaks during the Southern Hemisphere summer, started early after an unusually warm and dry winter.

Around 3 million hectares (7.4 million acres) of land has burned nationwide during a torrid past few months, with nine people killed and more than 800 homes destroyed.

Australia's embattled Prime Minister defended his government's climate policy Monday, as authorities warned the wildfire crisis ravaging the country's most populous state could fester for months.

Speaking during a visit to Mudgee in New South Wales, Scott Morrison said the need to "take action on climate change hasn't changed"

Around 200 wildfires were burning in four states, with New South Wales accounting for more than half of them, including 60 fires not contained.

Morrison insisted Australia would meet its emission targets.

He said he would "remain very focused on those policies".

"Those policies will see us meet and beat our commitments when it comes to Kyoto and I believe we will achieve the same when it comes to Paris because our policies embrace taking additional actions and that's been set out for some time."

Morrison also commented on a tweet from climate activist Greta Thunberg which accused the Australian Government's of lacking action on climate change.

The Prime Minister simply said he will not be making comments on commentaries made from people outside of Australia and ensured his government's focus is on looking after Australians.

"Now the weather might help for a little while but the weather will turn from friend to enemy very quickly in these fires as we see and the great planning work that's been done in these areas and ensuring that the crews and the aerial fire fighting is in place to mitigate and prevent and the strategising that goes ahead and is then executed is extraordinary so I want to thank everybody with the work they're doing there."

++BLACK FRAMES++

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia:

"What will happen after these fires is we'll plan to do it even better next time and the premiers will meet with me in March, there are already options and proposals that are being worked on now for us to consider. I've already been talking to the premiers about those but what we don't want to do is distract from the here and now, operational requirements and that's where we need the focus of our chiefs right now. Plenty of issues to review everything from how hazard management is dealt with in National Park areas and in so many of the areas that we've seen incinerated that has happened through dry lightning strikes or carelessness on some occasions, that's why communications are so important, or in worse cases arson. All of those things are things that will be looked at and taken into account."

++BLACK FRAMES++

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia:

"We'll continue to be addressing the challenge of climate change. Our policies already, already have ensured that we can continue to make further improvements to what we're doing. I've said ourselves that we not only want to just meet but beat our commitments that we made for Paris in 2030. Angus Taylor himself was saying the same thing several months ago. So when I say that we're sticking with our policies, our policies actually address the need to continue to address this challenge so I know people want to play word games and look for conflict where there isn't any, and there's not here. We have a clear policy on these things and we will continue to pursue it."

++BLACK FRAMES++

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia:

"Well what I know is that the need to take action on climate change hasn't changed and you don't run government on sentiment, you run government on the facts and you run government on what you need to do to protect our environment and it's sustainability for the future to protect our economy and the jobs and the livelihood that Australians depend on. What you run Government on the decisions you take are based on those important facts and the facts when it comes to addressing climate change and the facts on what it comes to ensuring we have a strong economy which provides people with the livelihoods that they depend on, they remain the same. And so we will remain very focused on those policies and implement them the way we promised to in the last election which was only six months ago and those policies will see us meet and beat our commitments when it comes to Kyoto and I believe we will achieve the same when it comes to Paris because our policies embrace taking additional actions and that's been set out for some time."

++FRAMES OF BLACK++

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia:

(In reply to Greta Thunberg's tweet) "Australia and the Australian government will set our policies based on Australia's national interests on what Australia needs to do, that's where I keep my focus. It's not for me to make commentaries on what those outside of Australia think Australia should do. We'll do in Australia what we think is right for Australia and that has always been my guiding principle. I'm not here to try and impress people overseas, I'm here to do the right job for Australians and put them first, and that means putting the environment in which we live at the top of that agenda along with the economy in which people live at the top of that agenda."

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison took an aerial tour on Monday of the bushland where the Gospers Mountain megafire destroyed dozens of buildings around the Bilpin, Dargan and Clarence areas in the Blue Mountains over the weekend, before arriving in Mudgee to meet evacuated residents.

Residents fled their homes on Saturday night after the Gospers Mountain and Oakey Creek fires joined, creating what locals have described as a "fireball" that tore through the area north west of the Blue Mountains.

Morrison spoke with locals staying at the Mudgee Evacuation Centre who were nervously waiting to hear if their homes are safe.

One woman told Morrison, "We don't know yet when we can go home. Our house is safe at the moment, but we have been told it could change any moment."

STORYLINE:

“Flash” the koala showed strong signs of recovery on November 26, after being severely burnt in the Hillville bushfire near Taree, on the New South Wales Mid North Coast, weeks earlier. A carer at the Port Stephens Koala hospital filmed Flash hungrily shovelling gum leaves into his mouth after having his wounds changed. “He did go off his food the other day but I’m thinking that was a little blip because I’m so pleased he’s chomping now,” the carer says in the video. “We’re winning so far,” she says. “His hands and feet looks absolutely 10 time better,” she adds as Flash uses his mitten-clad paws to rumage for a better clump of leaves. “I know what it’s like to be in hospital and most of the time the food’s disgusting. So we’re trying to give him the best food we can find. This is like Harrods on a tree,” the carer adds. Port Stephens Koalas said it relies heavily on the donations from members of the community and urged donators to provide cash through the website rather than send in items. “Sadly we can’t use many of these items for specialised treatments”. Meanwhile, another problem was looming for the sanctuary as many of the koalas being treated would not be able to return to habitats destroyed in the November fires. “Many of these burns victims will be displaced for many, many months to come while we wait for their habitat to regrow. They have their own specific territories and it’s important that they return to it. Thinking ahead we’re already scratching our heads and planning on how we can accommodate them during this period which will also incur a further expense.” Credit: Port Stephens Koalas via Storyful

Firefighters battled an out of control blaze at Bulwer, on Moreton Island, Queensland, on November 19, after campers on the island were ordered to evacuate. The blaze was “slow-moving” but “dangerous”, and was threatening communities in Bulwer, Cowan and Tangalooma, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES) said in an alert. “Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave now if it is clear to do so. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous,” authorities warned campers on the island. “There is the potential for this fire to move unpredictably and it may impact campsites right across Moreton Island in the coming hours and days. The situation is expected to remain unsafe for a number of days.” This footage shows a helicopter fighting the fire near Bulwer, on November 18. Credit: Jordan Booth via Storyful

Skies across New South Wales were shrouded in smoke due to the wildfires on Tuesday, with some turning orange above Batehaven.

Cooler weather since Tuesday has aided firefighting and allowed people to replenish supplies.

However, fire conditions are expected to deteriorate on Saturday as high temperatures and strong winds return.

Authorities said 381 homes had been destroyed on the New South Wales southern coast this week.

At least eight people have died in the state and in neighbouring Victoria this week, Australia's two most-populous states, where more than 200 fires are currently burning.

New South Wales authorities ordered tourists to leave a 250-kilometre (155-mile) zone along the south coast.

Homes were reportedly destroyed and residents and visitors forced to flee as out-of-control fires bore down on the coastal New South Wales town of Batemans Bay on December 31. Smoke and flames turned the sky lurid shades of red and orange, as shown in multiple videos. This video, recorded at 1 pm from nearby Nelligen, shows how the change in wind direction turned the area from day to night in just a few minutes. The New South Wales Rural Fire Service urged people in the area to seek shelter as it had become too late to attempt to leave. Credit: Roderick Shehan via Storyful

STORYLINE:

December has seen fires continue to heavily impact the lives of residents of New South Wales, with the NSW Rural Fire Service commissioner saying on December 31 that this year’s had so far been the worst fire season on record in the state. As lives and homes are lost, local landmarks have also gone up in flames. This close-up footage shows what The Australian called “the beloved Tutti Frutti Cafe” completely engulfed in flames. The video footage of the ruined family-run business was captured on December 21 by a volunteer firefighter along a roadside in the small Blue Mountains town of Bilpin. The ABC reported that the area had been affected by a “mega blaze” on this date. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful

STORYLINE:

As a fire bore down on the coastal Victoria town of Mallacoota on December 31, Ida Dempsey and her companions took to a boat off the coast to wait out the worsening conditions. According to Dempsey’s posts, they evacuated to the boat around 8 am and were back on dry land to the safety of their van some four hours later, though smoke and haze remained an issue. Several buildings were on fire in Mallacoota, according to a Victorian emergency services update around midday, while a nearly 73,000-hectare blaze burned just to the west of the town. Images shared to social media showed evacuees gathered at a wharf and near beaches in the Mallacoota area, ready to enter the water should the firefront threaten, as it was too late to leave. The morning sky was at times turned black and a deep red as the air filled with smoke and ash from the fires, according to reports. This video shows people hunkered down on a boat off the coast.
