A smoky Sydney morning


Bushfires continue to ravage the east coast of Australia this morning, and Sydney is now down wind of it. The view below was from my morning commute from Martin Place train station. Normally I can see the buildings in the background as clear as the ones in front.

The Australian Red Cross are accepting donations for disaster relief efforts. They’re also maintaining a register for those living in rural areas to let friends and family know people are safe. Please help them out if you can.
