International Help Arriving.

Meanwhile, a group of 60 United States fires recovery experts is arriving in Melbourne today to help with the aftermath of Victoria’s bushfires.

Twenty-six specialists in assessing burnt areas and damage to water catchments are among the contingent.

He says almost half of the team’s task will be assessing water catchments.
