On a Net page filled with text and visual news links, The Daily Telegraph report begins:
Victoria remains under a shroud of smoke and grief today with thousands homeless and at least 108 people dead after the worst bushfires in the nation's history.The DT’s entire page is here.
Entire towns were wiped out in the weekend's fires, which the Prime Minister described as hell's fury unleashed.
Australia's population is about 20 million.
America’s population is about 300 million.
So a proportionate death toll for Americans works out to roughly 15 times what the Aussies have experienced or about 1600 dead.
Our thoughts and prayers go the Australian people.
Let’s keep a watch out for how we in the States can help.
Perhaps Scott S. who’s down there in southern Australia and looks in at JinC often will give us a lead on how we can help a great people and their country in a terrible time.
