In Photos: Australia Bush Fire

200 homes have been damaged or destroyed during a massive bush fire in New South Wales.

The fire started at the Port Stephens area, more than 100 kilometers (60 miles) north of Sydney on October 13th.

A 63-year-old man died of a suspected heart attack on Friday, defending his house from the big fire.

Police said Monday they had arrested two boys, age 11 and 15, over two earlier bush fires.

The 11-year-old has been charged with two counts of intentionally causing fire and being reckless as to its spread, NSW Police Force said.

About 287,000 acres (116,167 hectares) were affected by the fire.

A volunteer fire fighter, Michael Green recorded a video of the fire using his phone.

CNN reported that Forecasts of high temperatures, low humidity and strong winds over the next few days in the Blue Mountains region, west of Sydney, have state officials especially concerned.

Power lines were also blamed for the fire as reported by CNN.

Locals feared that three big fires could merge into an inferno in New South Wales where lots of people live.

Here are the photos of the fire…

Photos Of World’s Natural Extraordinary Phenomena

There are lots of natural rock formations, strange coloured lakes and other strange natural phenomena around the world.

Rock formations are caused after years and years of erosion and algae turned lakes into strange coloured lakes.

They are strange but so special, natural and beautiful. 

I really like the pink lake; it looks so beautiful, and it is hard to believe that it is a naturally coloured lake and no artificial colouring was added 🙂

It looks so tasty too, like a lake of pink guava juice.

Floods have hit New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria in Australia.

Wagga Wagga in New South Wales is badly hit by the disaster.

About 9,000 people have been ordered to evacuate the city of Wagga Wagga and its surrounds where the Murrumbidgee is predicted to peak at 10.9 metres (36 feet), right on the levee’s limit, at 6:00 pm (0800 GMT).

Floodwaters are expected to breach the levee this evening, Tuesday March 6, 2012.
