Tropical Cyclone Hits Fire-Ravaged Australia



Tropical Cyclone Blake has hit fire-ravaged Australia.


The western coast was hit with wind gusts to 100 km/h and rainfall amounts of 146 mm recorded.


There was no widespread damage with just a few trees reported to be down.


It brought some much-needed help to the western half of the country. Australia is in the midst of the worst fire season in recent memory.


The storm won't make it to the hardest-hit states, New South Wales and Victoria. To a lesser extent, there are fires burning in the western part of Australia.
