Some pretty terrible fires are happening in Australia right now, and, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be an uncommon occurrence. I’ve previously compiled “Best” lists on other fires there — earlier this year and in 2009. They also had flooding in 2011. On a more positive note, I’ve also posted The Best Sites To Learn About Australia.

I’ll be adding this newest list to A Compilation Of “The Best…” Lists About Natural Disasters.
