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.
Bodie Shaw, from the US embassy in Canberra, says the experts have been told they could be here for a month or longer, depending on the challenge of the task ahead.
He says almost half of the team’s task will be assessing water catchments.
