Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-01-13   English BBS   Favorite  

Which of these nations is composed of six states and two territories? Australia, India, Malaysia, or Mexico. Though all of these nations have states, only Australia has exactly six of them in addition to its territories.
And four of those states have been effected by bushfires. There are more than 200 of them burning in Australia which is going through a drought and still has at least two hot summer months left before the season's over. One of the blazes covered 23 square miles over the weekend. That's bigger than the New York City borough of Manhattan. In all 23,000 square miles have burned. That's more than 14 and a half million acres. Twenty-four people have been killed this fire season. And even where the flames themselves can't be seen, an ominous red sky hangs over the countryside.

These aren't the worst fires Australia has ever had. Those struck in 2009 killing 173 people and injuring hundreds more, but what's happening now has led to the largest peacetime evacuation in Australian history.
