Heat Wave

HIt's Hot Hot Hot in Australia!

Parts of Australia are used to hot weather, but recent temperatures have been soaring and causing chaos across the country.

The heat wave forced the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne to suspend lots of matches because the players couldn't cope with the heat. Tennis officials had to close the retractable roof over the main stadium.

It's not just the tennis players who have been affected; the heat wave has caused bush fires across the country. Two houses were engulfed in flames in southern Australia, and more than 140,000 homes have been left without power.


Thousands of firefighters are on standby, and health officials are telling people to stay indoors, use air conditioners and make sure they drink enough water.

No, I've done proper research unlike you it seems, Loads of the news is controlled by Israel such as BBC so is biased against Palestine anyway. You seem to insist that it is the Jews rightful homeland when it wasn't. The jews didn't have anywhere so they decided to invade Palestine many years ago and call it Israel, that doesn't make it their rightful homeland, does it? -.- And you can't expect to know everything about it if you just go to one side of the battle. Go to Palestine's side and you will see it is so much worse. But your too ignorant to think that and so you have a biased opinion. How do you expect Hamas to have ceasefire when they are trying to claim back their freedom. I'm not saying I agree with their methods but it isn't surprising really. And you do realise the tunnels are for supplies of clean water, medicine, etc   for the Palestinians as its the only way for them to get aid in seeing as though Israel has imprisoned them and is controlling everything that goes in and out. The Israeli's aren't even letting them have clean water! And most of these are innocent people! And even worse, Israel are targetting these tunnels so there is no way the Palestinians can get aid. No nation should have to put up with that!
