最近澳洲天氣頗怪,昆士蘭北部因為暴風雨淹水,半個昆士蘭州都在水裡(淹水面積達一百萬平方公里,接近三十個台灣)。但是澳州的東南部一帶(含South Australia、Victoria、New South Wales三州),卻是熱浪來襲,尤其Victoria州(墨爾本在這州)部分地區高達46度,墨爾本也達到了43度,澳洲媒體稱為百年來的熱浪。真的太熱了,熱到電力輸送的變壓交換所的機器也爆炸,因此大停電。熱浪甚至引發野火,燒毀了數十間房屋;同時也有數十多人熱死。

目前維多利亞州的大火已經摧毀了數百間房子(現已朝向人為縱火方向調查),受災面積超過了兩個倫敦廣達數千平方公里,因此而喪生的人數已經逼近兩百人。2月9日所有澳州的報紙皆以頭條新聞報導世紀性的澳洲大火。

目前已知有兩千多棟房子被燒毀,喪生人數兩百多人。至於其中一處大火可能遭到縱火的嫌犯已經被抓到。大火有好幾處,一直在燃燒著;大約在幾天前,因為大風的關係,使得大火燃燒的區域再度擴大。目前澳洲政府已經將2月7日訂為國殤日,此後每年2月7日都會降辦旗紀念。

消防人員救火時,還發現受困的無尾熊,消防隊員將自己的水拿給無尾熊喝。

Koala's Desperate - Its Too Darn Hot!

Published by Lis Sowerbutts at 11:12 am under Australia News, Australia Photos Edit This

At Australia News we try to avoid the cute animal stories but Koalas begging a drink from humans …- how cute is this,  but sad too - this is a desperate Koala! Highly unusual - I looked hard because I suspected photoshop- Koala’s just don’t do this - but as far as I can tell its for real!

The Eastern states have been sweltering in 40+ temperatures for weeks now - even notoriously fickle Melbourne weather has set  new records, Adelaide has been hotter than usual - and fatally so - the morgue is filled up with heat-related deaths “dying to get cold” is a bit bad taste I agree!

If you’ve never experenced such extreme weather take care of your domestic pets - birds die in the wild from heat exhaustion so keep pet birds in the shade and make sure dogs don’t burn their paws on hot pavements.

But the Koala photos - well they are extraordinary if true - Koala’s sleep around 23 hours a day - and seldom move very far  - so to see them on the road is amazing in the first place.

3.還有很多無尾熊到處要水喝
