Been watching the coverage most of today, Seeing the unbelievable video footage of the carnage and loss of life. With the toll now at 50 [ as reported on the 5pm news ] and most likely to climb even further as the police etc get to move into new areas. I can only imagine what the townsfolk are going through, I was up in Emerald fighting the ASH Wed fires and from what I'm seeing, as horrific as that week was, that week is looking like a walk in the park to what is going on now. To all our Volunteer firefighters, and all those helping in whatever way they can, I salute you To those that have lost a loved one/s , my deepest condolences. To those that have passed away I hope to god that it was quick and as painless as possible.
