AUSTRALIA — Australia has been subjected to a seven-day state of emergency specifically to the state of New South Wales (NSW).

Based on this information, it is in the midst of fears that the record-breaking heatwave that escalates into the unresolved bushfire crisis will only worsen.

“The biggest concern over the next few days is the unpredictability, with extreme wind conditions (and) extremely hot temperatures,” as a part of Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s declaration in a weekly state of emergency.

The Australian state yesterday experienced the hottest temperatures of 40.9C (105.6F).

The Australian state yesterday experienced the hottest temperatures of 40.9C (105.6F).

However, forecasters have warned of higher temperatures in the coming days.

It was learned that more than 100 fires have been extinguished by New South Wales authorities in recent months.

Last November when the situation in NSW was raised to “catastrophic status”, the fire spread rapidly due to strong winds.

It was reported that more than 100 schools were temporarily closed in the “High risks zone”.

Catastrophic warning means that firefighters can no longer withstand the fire. (Marian Sinamban/IAMIGO/CNS)
