Fires in Landes are still burning.
Fires in Landes still burning. Its been a hot summer for everyone in mainland Europe. This summer has been the longest & hottest summer in memory . From June to mid Septembre we have had plenty of 40+ heat waves.
Unfortunately , its been a lot worse than was expected. The fires managed to shut the highway , blocking tourists, and we have lost thousands of acres of forest.
Over the last 4 days we have had x2 fires about 10k,s away in Magesq. Yesterday the latest fires destroyed over 150 hectors of forest. Luckily we have a full army of the “canadair” planes that have been filling up in Soustons lake and dropping it on the fires.
