I know New Zealand it pretty small but the size of the fires and destruction already left….
I mean when the fire is as big as your island homes island state it is a massive issue.
The box is based on the guardians interactive map and they have just updated it to be the current amount of land burned. It will increase, sadly it seems substantially by this time next week
It is bigger than some American states and no doubt states and providences in other countries as well. The government didn’t take it seriously at the start or while it was ramping up and I am not sure they are taking it seriously now because I don’t know if they have taken the meetings requested many months before these even started yet or not.
The link is here if you want to see how big it is compared to a reference point you know.
It is crazy, scary and just so so sad. So much death and destruction.
