13 января 2020 г. 11:04

The air quality in the Australian city of Melbourne was rated as «hazardous» on Tuesday, the worst-rated level, as residents found themselves engulfed in a thick cloud of smoke from the bushfires which have been raging in the country since September. Residents can be seen wearing masks, while the atmosphere is so thick the city can barely be seen in drone images. At least 27 people and around half a billion animals have reportedly died since a record-breaking heatwave triggered the fires in Australia in September.
