I will pile on a bit. The next 48 hours are going to produce a potentially terrible situation concerning fire storms.

What boggles me is how the Govt is still ignoring climate change and denying the links between the coming events and climate change.

From the article:
People in bushfire-risk areas have been told to start thinking now about a survival plan and head to larger towns and built-up areas.

Commissioner Fitzsimmons warned, "we cannot guarantee a fire truck at every home" and encouraged early evacuation for those at risk.

"If you're not doing that tonight, you certainly need to be doing it early tomorrow morning," he said.

"We know the fires on the northern coast are not going to be contained ahead of tomorrow's weather, which means those fires are going to spread, they're going to spread quickly and spread aggressively."

A total fire ban is in place statewide for Monday and Tuesday and some schools have been closed.

Commissioner Fitzsimmons said more than 1,400 personnel from interstate had joined the firefighting effort in NSW and 400 more were set to arrive today ahead of tomorrow's dangerous conditions.

He said up to 20 firefighters had already accessed medical attention in hospitals as blazes intensified.
