    And it's not just the human cost either, as crushingly tragic as that is.

    How much of the bush has been destroyed and at what cost to the plants and animals living there. For Australia's unique ecosystem it could be catastrophic.

    It's not good that's for sure.

    No change to the official toll at the moment but lots of people still unaccounted for.

    Oh no, Nanav. :( I so hope everything is safe with them.

    Dawn, that is an excellent point. The earth and animals will suffer too. Ecosystems are far more fragile than is sometimes believed. :(

    I had an email form my Uncle and my parents have spoken to him.

    They know a lot of people who have been affected directly and some have lost everything.
    My cousin was evacuated from her house but as the roads were closed couldn't go anywhere and had to sit it out and hope for the best.

    A local wildlife park had it's endangered species moved out but couldn't save all of the animals as there were just too many to find homes for.
    No one has been able to go back and see how things are there yet.

    My Uncle is a church minister so is working very closely with the church and comminity to do what he can.

    He just wants us all to keep them in our prayers.
