An estimated 700 people have already been evacuated after blaze took hold on parched countryside
A huge bushfire that has been raging in the parched New Zealand countryside for four days has forced hundreds of residents to be evacuated from their homes and prompted fears that climate change has caused the nation to become “more flammable”.
Firefighters have been working for most of the week to put out fires covering more than 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) around Nelson on the northern tip of the South Island of New Zealand.

People are prepared for earthquakes and tsunamis and volcanic activity, but I don’t think most people would have thought about fire

| Terrawatch: 'slow earthquake' in Turkey took 50 days to shake out

Strain data shows a magnitude 5.8 quake in summer 2016 – but nobody felt it, scientists say
It was a magnitude 5.8 earthquake, but nobody felt it. That’s because this quake took about 50 days to shake itself out. Occurring a few kilometres south of Istanbul, this “slow earthquake”, which took place during summer 2016, could be a sign that the dangerous is reawakening.
Geologists know that strain is travelling from east to west across Turkey (caused by Asia ploughing into Europe). Large earthquakes have sequentially released strain along the east-west trending North Anatolian fault, with the most recent being the devastating magnitude 7.6 , which killed more than 17,000 people. Istanbul and the surrounding area are next in line, posing a severe threat to the 15 million inhabitants.
