Heat and bush fires in Australia

In the last few weeks, heavy bush fires caused severe damage and cost the lives of at least 3 people.

A thick veil of smoke blown from bushfires hung over Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, on Tuesday morning. The air quality dropped to very low levels and several people were treated for asthma and other breathing-related problems.
Summer has not yet begun in the Southern Hemisphere, but rising temperature, strong wind and the worst drought in decades could exacerbate dangerous fire conditions.

According to the weather forecast for Kimba, the temperatureswill drop slightly for a few days.
