Yet again, the fires burn out of control and now it’s started to creep ever closer to larger populations such as Silves. Of course, the further south the fire reaches, the more people will be in it’s path.
Here in the São Marcos da Serra area, we again keep watching the wind direction as today a fierce front is burning not too far away, now to the South West of the village. The wind direction seems to be switching from Northerly to Westerly which is keeping the fire away from the village.
As I have done for the last couple of days I decided to help the locals in the Village by informing them via the local Facebook Page of the fire’s location.
Here are a few photos I took whilst out.
Here is a video I recorded for Facebook (portrait for mobile use)
