Catastrophic fire danger rating for Sunday

A Catastrophic Fire Danger (red-and-black striped wedge) has been declared for the Mid Western region (10) tomorrow.

This is as bad as it gets. For your survival, leaving early is the only option. Leave bush fire prone areas the night before or early in the day – do not just wait and see what happens. Decide where you will go, how you will get there and when you will return. Homes are not designed to withstand fires in catastrophic conditions.
