Victoria's Darkest Day.....



The death toll from this morning is 108.
They are saying it will go much higher as today they are finding families that groped together and died together..

Over 700 hundred houses are GONE... They said the fire came so fast and so strong that in some streets the only thing left is the cement foundation of those houses..

I was born in Victoria Australia and I am so very heart broken for all of those that have lost everything including there lives! Praying for all those.

On the news this morning a father who was helping put fires out was looking for his wife and 3 young children. He was so helpless as the police would not let him though to find out if his house was still there and if his family had made it.
I was sitting in tears watching...


The link here is of photos and it really is just mind blowing looking at the how much has been devastated
Photos that will reduce you to tears

I have been meaning to ask you about the fires down there. I have been thinking of you every time I hear about them. Are they close to where you live right now?
