Finally, the moment the world has been waiting for! Rain has fallen over parts of Australia, putting out over 30 deadly bushfires!

Australia received heavy rain, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. The downpours have already helped to extinguish 32 bushfires in New South Wales alone, as the number of fires fell from 120 to 88 on Thursday.

The Bureau of Meteorology are expecting 30 and 80mm worth of rain in the east of New South Wales, between Thursday and Sunday. People are in hopes that it might finally bring relief to the exhausted firefighters who have battled the deadly flames for over three months now.

The regions of New South Wales and Victoria, have received approximately 15mm of rain that was so desperately needed this Wednesday and Thursday. The severe thunderstorms have also caused flooding in Melbourne. While the rain has dampened the fires, more than 80 of them continue burning in the New South Wales area and 18 of them – in Victoria.

Meteorologist have reported that, “The hit & miss nature of thunderstorms means it’s difficult to forecast exactly where the heaviest rain will be—some parts of bushfire & drought-affected eastern Australia could see 50–100 mm over the next few days; while others may see very little.”

Any rain is good news for Australia, the hard working firefighters and the animal population. Since the fires began a little over 3-months ago, well over a half a billion animals have lost their lives.
