If you have been reading about the recent fires in Australia, you know how dire the situation is there. People have evacuated their homes, and there’s been a significant impact on the overall quality of life. The tourism industry is suffering as well since people are reluctant to travel to a country currently undergoing a crisis.
Although the fires are far from over, there was some relief. A set of storms has brought some much-needed relief to the region and has helped the firefighters make some progress.
According to the BBC:
This fact is good news for people who have experienced significant issues due to the fire, and, of course, people are hopeful that this will represent a turning point in the fight and allow firefighters to continue to contain the blaze.
It’s also good news for the wildlife that has been ravaged by these fires. Many people have reported the significant displacement and death of wildlife within the region, which could have substantial long-term repercussions for the stability of the area. Hopefully, this most recent rainfall will help those animals and provide them the ability to migrate to safety.
