New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a seven-day state of emergency as many parts of the state face ‘catastrophic’ bushfire conditions on 12 November. Around 600 schools across the state will be closed, along with childcare centres in high-risk areas. The NSW Rural Fire Service states that live embers could travel up to 30 kilometres from fire fronts, while it has warned people that it might not have enough time to warn them about some fires. Transport for NSW is warning people to avoid non-essential travel on roads and public transport.
