Already expected this month bushfires in Victoria as Australia's largest national disaster, both in terms of human costs and likely damage. Nearly 200 people have lost their lives, more than 500 were injured, and the toll will rise, perhaps dramatically if all affected areas are surveyed. Victoria Premier John Brumby yesterday warned that dozens of bodies not remain unidentified, and that the others remain unrecovered.
