Which 'summer' are you having?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.

How has your summer been?

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

A real time update for worldwide Covid-19

Fiona from Henderson

We spoke a family member over in The Netherlands and we were left flabbergasted that they haven't shut their borders.
WTH???
They have 8,647 confirmed cases and 546 deaths. What does it take for them to wake the heck up?
Their neighbours Belgium have:
7,284 confirmed & 289 deaths
Germany have:
50,871 confirmed & 351 deaths.
The total recovered for each country are:
Netherlands 6
Belgium 858
Germany 6,658
Belgium & Germany have both closed their borders.
Where as Netherlands have gone soft and only closed their borders for non-eu travelers - WTH???
At this rate, this vile virus is never going to go away!!!
Here is an EXCELLENT link to watch how things are progressing worldwide in real time.
