Today every Australian state has fire danger warnings. In Victoria it’s ‘Code Red’. In Queensland and most other states it’s ‘Severe’ or ‘Very High’. On top of that, northwest Victoria suffers from strong winds sweeping away desert dust, turning the sky orange or even red.

Pictures and videos show the main street and houses in Mildura enveloped by thick, orange-red dust.

This strange weather event is due to a wind shift just after midday on November 21, 2019. The visibility has been dansgerously reduced:

Today, central and northwestern Victoria are in bushfire warning code red. That’s the worst possible conditions (high winds, high temperatures and drought) and residents have been advised to leave their homes, as they are not built to withstand the types of fires seen on a code red day.

Record-high temperatures for the season and strong gusty winds are expected during the day across the northern parts of the state. [9News]
