Breaking: Australian fires in some areas will burn all the way to the Ocean in an unstoppable fire front.
Forecasts by fire authorities predict bushfires on the New South Wales south coast could burn west to east until they reach the coast. The fires could burn almost everything in the way. Major towns will be impacted.
The fear is the intense bushfires will burn all the way to the Ocean until there’s nothing left to consume. There may be very little firefighters can do when the fire front is this intense and fueled by dry, thick bush.
Maps distributed by the NSWRFS in the past few hours shows an incredible area of bush land is set to be lost.
Walls of flames will be fanned by high winds, hot temperatures and a lack of humidity.
”Dangerous fires in Shoalhaven, South Coast, Snowy Mountains & areas surrounding Greater Sydney. You should not be in potential spread areas or potential ember attack areas on Saturday,” NSW RFS said.
Maps shows the fire front expected to impact major towns including Narooma and Bermagui.
The town of Nowra is also under serious threat with firefighters desperate to stop the fire jumping the Shoalhaven River.
Jervis Bay and Ulladulla could also be impacted by embers and dangerous conditions.
Father south Bega would be impacted by embers and serious fire conditions.
The town of Jindabyne is also in danger.
Huge areas of the Alpine regions in NSW and Victoria are also under threat.
In Sydney, areas close to Penrith and outer western Sydney is under threat.
We urge you to monitor the NSW RFS website and social media for up to date and accurate information.
