Hi All

Peter's fine, while in bed i could hear thunder now i can hear RAIN happy days.

It deeply saddens me to hear of so many dead in these awful fire.

Perhaps a roll call of all members in those areas where the fires have been to let the Forum know they are OK.

Peter

It seems that a French citizen is among the dead. And there is one more dead, a firefighter :-(

I've found this site where the extent of the devastation can be seen albeit it's not the most obvious to navigate.

http://effis.jrc.ec.europa.eu/static/ef ... index.html

Open the site and on the left there is a box titled "Fire Danger Forecast" untick the check box within that box to remove the blanket red colouring over PT. Within the map box on the right is a search option (magnifying glass), enter your chosen location, e.g. Pedrogao Grande.
Go back to the left of the screen and below the "Fire Danger Forecast" box is another box titled "Rapid Damage Assessment". Within that box there are check boxes under "Active Fires" and "Burnt areas" with the option of the chosen information being obtained from Modis or Viirs, personally I think the Modis info is more accurate from what I saw when I went to Avelar the other day.
A huge swathe of land has suffered but within that burnt area are entire villages that are untouched thanks to the efforts of the Bombeiros and residents, I take my hat off to them.
Anyone heard anything from the forum members who had homes in and around the affected areas?

Every now and then the newspapers mention some British, Dutch people, usually telling stories of narrow escapes. But to fay I read about 3 British people that were burnes and taken to hospital. Remember there are some 200 wounded and, if I remember correctly, some 7 people in very serious condition. Let's hope that all be OK in the end.

Also, the Gois fire joined the one of Pedrógão later. It'es one of the bigest fires registered so far.
