Update from Blue Mountains FCC 23 November 2009

Update on bushfire activity from the Blue Mountains Fire Control Centre. 8.00pm                          23 November 2009

Section 44 Declared for Blue Mountains/ Lithgow LGA

Low cloud and showers have prevented the deployment of crews and aircraft resources today to the sites of bush fire activity which commenced late last week in remote and rugged terrain in the Blue Mountains/Lithgow areas. Resources will be moved to the Lithgow area tomorrow to enable reconnaissance, mopping up and patrol activities planned for today to continue.

Although milder weather conditions experienced today and forecast for tomorrow will assist in lessening any risk from bushfire activity, residents are advised to ensure that they and their properties remain prepared. Warmer weather conditions are predicted for Wednesday.
