The dangerous spring blazes have burnt through almost two million hectares in New South Wales and Queensland alone.
Many animals are strong but others, unfortunately, don’t survive.
Blazes have caused so much damage to homes in the outer suburbs and thick plumes of smoke have blanketed the urban center. A total of 28 people across Australia have died this fire period, including several volunteer firefighters.
Recently, actor Russell Crowe took to Twitter to share the pictures showing the transformative effect that the recent rainfall has had on the devastated land.
He wrote: ‘’My place 10 weeks ago after the fire had gone through, and this morning after a big weekend of rain.’’
Russell noticed a drastic change when he returned to his place in Australia. His land was ravaged by blazing flames 10 weeks ago and it looks miserable. The rain which happened a whole weekend helped the ground and trees to become green again.
After seeing Russell’s photos, social media users started sharing how their own lands came back to life after the rain. One user shared the photo of her place writing, ‘’Our place next door .. slowly coming back .. sadly.. houses don’t grow back!’’
Another wrote alongside the photo of their land, ‘’Every direction looks the same at my place @russellcrowe. I wish I was as lucky as you. Wanna buy my 25 acres? Cos I don’t think anyone else will.’’
Australia has always had bushfires but this season has been a lot worse than normal. The deadliest bushfire disaster of Australia was “Black Saturday” in February 2009, when 180 people died in Victoria. According to scientists, Australia fires are the indication of the planet’s future.
“This is what you can expect to happen … at an average of 3C [above pre-industrial levels],” said Richard Betts, professor of geography at Exeter University. “We are seeing a sign of what would be normal conditions in a 3C world. It tells us what the future world might look like. This really brings home what climate change means.”
