For Tuesday the President has tweeted 2 times and retweeted 15 times.

ABC News reported on Monday that according to New South Wales Police Force they have charged over two dozen people for intentionally starting fires that have burned through Australia.

24 people have been charged with deliberately setting fires while another 53 people are facing legal action for not complying with the state’s fire ban and 47 people have faced legal action for discarding a lit cigarette or match on land.

Since the start of Australia’s fire season, over 12 million acres have burned, 2,000 homes have been destroyed, and 24 people have perished.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also thanked via Twitter, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the President of France Emmanuel Macron, and the US, Canada, and others for providing support to Australia.

BBC News reported that “Rain has brought some respite to the thousands of firefighters and volunteers tackling the blazes, which have been burning since September. The fires intensified over the past week, with a number towns evacuated.”

It’s estimated that as of Monday there were 130 fires burning in New South Wales, the state that has been the worst affected.
