CNN News:澳大利亚再起山火 世界最大沙岛火势失控

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-12-30   English BBS   Favorite  

As parts of the United States saw near record cold this week, parts of Australia have been sweltering under record breaking heat. And that's a concern as the nation's bush fire season heats up.
Wildfires are common in Australia especially during the summer which just began there. But it's 2019-2020 bush fire season was its worst on record and that's why people inside and outside of Australia are keeping a close eye on Fraser Island, a strip of land off the country's east coast that's about 75 miles long and 15 miles wide. An illegal campfire there ignited a wildfire that's been burning out of control for a month and a half.

Firefighters have been doing all they can to stop it. Sometimes dropping water on it from the air but strong winds and a heat wave that hit Fraser Island this week have threatened to make matters worse. It's the world's largest sand island.
The only one with a tall rainforest that grows on sand and a popular vacation destination but Fraser Island is being scorched. Some of the people there have been told to get off the island and given what happened in other parts of Australia last year at this time, residents are hoping Fraser Island isn't the sign of things to come.
