Normal life in Australia has been badly disrupted due to these fires, which have been raging since September 2019.

However, in the past few days, some areas have found some respite from the fires because of rainfall. 

Meanwhile, about 2,000 homes have been destroyed in these fires. The extent of these fires can be gauged from the area affected by them, which is larger than the area of 18 Indian states, including Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.

The state of New South Wales has been the worst-affected in these fires. The fires have also destroyed a very large area in the Adelaide Hills region of Cudlee Creek in South Australia.

It is expected that the peril from the fires might increase in Australia’s Victoria in the next 48 hours, because of which people are evacuating their homes.
