Bushfire alert - AAWT near Corryong Benambra Rd

Postby scoha » Tue 06 Oct, 2015 4:47 pm

I understand there is currently a bushfire about 28k north of Benambra on the Corryong Benambra Rd. This is about 8km north of the AAWT as it crosses this road.

Im a bit nervous as I have a food cache in the area for my AAWT from mid November.

Stay alert and check the CFA Fire Ready app for updates.

This fire is listed as safe now. Cooler weather on the way tomorrow. Winds have eased in the area now which will give fire crews a chance to clean it up. Storms predicted for later in the week which is more of a concern. Early start to the bushfire season in the High Country but this week has been unusually hot and dry. Current weather paterns are pointing to a hot dry summer so all walking plans need to be fluid. I think your food drop will be safe for the moment.
