The Morwell Fire the Next day.
Will You Survive a Disaster! http://finditwithusonline.com/FamilyS...
The fires cause a number home evacuations in the South and West of Morwell, while the winds were blowing. By late evening the winds had died down a bit and helped to slow down the spread of the fire towards the city of Morwell.

There was a lot less noise from the fire services sirens, planes and helicopters, which gave us a sense that there was a good change that the emergency services where getting on top of this wild fire that had caused some damage to the outskirts of Morwell.

The photos in this video are of the next day which was a lot calmer than the day before that rocked Morwell. We spoke to a few friends that had been evacuated, and they had never been through this before. Some could not believe this was happening and other had no issue in getting out and leaving. After the Ash Wednesday fires and the other fires we had seen in the hills, it was easy for most people to get out just in case.

Dialogue from the video for each photo:

The Morwell fire is still burning and has entered in to the Hazelwood open cut. This smoke is a lot darker than, the original grass fire smoke.
