    Bushfires hit western Lake Macquarie
    Tuesday, 26 November 2002

    Bushfires have stuck again in the Hunter, this time hitting the western parts of Lake Macquarie. For the last three days, much of the Hunter has recorded temperatures higher then 35C, relative humidity as low as 5% and fresh to strong WNW winds. The bushfires started on the F3 freeway near Killingworth and travelled SE. The smoke was visible at many locations in the Lower Hunter.

     

    The heatwave conditions brought with it the hottest November temperatures for five years in the Lower Hunter. Yesterday Cessnock (Nulkaba) recorded 40.5 C, Tocal 40.7 C, Maitland 40.5 C and Williamtown 38.5 C. Today the temperatures were only slightly cooler.
