Just a shout out to any hubbers that may have lost their house or been affected in someway by the Yarloop and SW fires - does anyone need help?
Nice to see that the Southbound cancellation refunds website has an option to donate some of your ticket refund money to those in need, and that all the food trucks are now going to the emergency shelters and emergency crews.
It's nuts out there this arvo, traffic, lightning, hail, another fire in Baldivis caused by lightning, I think we have some hubbers in that area?
Stay safe everyone and reach out if you need help.

WA Bushfires - any hubbers affected?

Omg. I'm not affected but I'm very close. My brother is fighting fires there and he just told me where the fire zone is and our friends house is in it and our friend is stubborn and staying to defend while running out of water.

Dss, your brother along with everyone else out there atm deserves a medal.
We had a scrub fire earlier this afternoon when the first lot of thunderstorms rolled through, that was bad enough seeing smoke billowing from across the highway. I hate to think the state down south. Tragic doesn't even cut it
There's an emergency warning for forrestdale too. Strangely dh received a text message about the warning even though it's not in our area

I have family in Bunbury who are on alert. I'm not in the state but thinking of everyone and wishing I could help.

We are down south and are on alert. I have friends that have been evacuated. Hoping it doesn't come to more.

It's 20km from our place, the evac centre is 1km from us. We're on alert, don't think it will be a very restful night tonight!
Had to help some evacuees at work today get hold of their regular meds - they left with nothing. Very stressful.

We aren't in immediate danger here (and hopefully won't be), but hubby was out there yesterday with his local brigade and will probably be back there this weekend. It's bad, very very bad.
If anyone is close, get out now. Harvey is going to cop it tonight

Got hold of our friend in the fire zone and he assures us he is in no immediate danger as yet but will get out when he is. The wind is blowing away.

Admittedly I've never been in the situation, but why wouldn't you pack your precious things and just get out? I have relatives at Preston who have been in and out of their home over the last few days but are still there right now. They have a huge family and friend network but even offers of houses and apartments in Perth wont accept them - but they will leave if the risk is too great. Why why why? Same result, less risk.
I know people that are still planning on going south this weekend for a 'holiday'. Dipsh!ts.
