More than 100 people are now dead in the Victorian bushfires. It’s the worst natural disaster in Australia… ever. There’s really just no way to process that. Firemen have likened the scene down there to a war zone, or the post-apocalyptic landscape from Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Though there were a number of fires in New South Wales too, thankfully we were spared the worst of the hot weather and no one was killed.
Updated: The death toll is now 128 and expected to rise. Good god.
