In Canberra at record temperatures, fires threaten



TEMPERATURES again reached record highs in Canberra yesterday for February as forest fires threaten the capital, which has been declared alert, the meteorological service said today.

Authorities in Canberra on Friday declared for the first time since 2003 in the Australian capital the state of standby due to forest fires.



Yesterday in Canberra measured 42.7 degrees Celsius

Yesterday the mercury in the thermometer climbed to 42.7 degrees Celsius, a record for February that exceeds the 42.2 degree recorded in 1968, Meteo France meteorologist Etienne Kapikian posted on Twitter.

It is also the third highest temperature recorded in the city, regardless of the month, he adds.

In Australia, the summer of 2019-2020 was the warmest since measurements were made, with records measured in January and December.

The Australian Meteorological Institute has not yet confirmed this information.

More than 80 fires continue to rage

The greatest fire risk is in the Orroral Valley, where 18,000 ha of vegetation has been destroyed.

Authorities say this heatwave accompanied by dry winds creates favorable conditions for forest fires in parts of New South Wales and Victoria. More than 80 fires continue to rage in those two states.

In Richmond, as many as 46.8 degrees Celsius were measured

Yesterday in Richmond, New South Wales, 46.8 degrees Celsius was measured.

The fires that have plagued Australia since September have killed 33 people, burned 100,000 square miles and over 2,000 homes. Experts estimate that more than one billion animals have been killed.
