Notes on significant weather not yet written

Western Australia

Between the 9th and 14th almost 18,000 hectares of bushland was burnt in the Mt Cooke area, 70 kilometres southeast of Perth, before being contained. The fire, started by lightning strikes, caused up to $1 million damage including lost campsites and infrastructure. High temperatures also re-ignited fires in Nowergup and Bullsbrook, burning more than 200 hectares of bushland and threatening several homes and farms.
