One week on

Its been over a week since that terrible day in Australian bushfire history. Though the weather has turned for the better the fire is still burning in parts of the state. For the last few days Melbournians been waking up with blanket of smoky haze choking the city.

The official death toll now stands at 189 but is expected to rise further. There are still many more people missing and there are still a lot of bodies to be identified by the coroner. Some of the bodies may never be identified due to the severity of the fire. I hope we never see another day like the Saturday on the 7th of February.
