Raging forest fires in central Portugal killed at least 62 people, many of them trapped in their cars as flames swept over a road, in what the prime minister on Sunday called "the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known in years. Nearly 60 other people were injured, including four firefighters and a seriously injured minor, Interior Ministry official Jorge Gomes told state broadcaster RTP. A lightning strike is believed to have sparked the blaze in the Pedrogao Grande area after investigators found a tree that was hit during a "dry thunderstorm," the head of the national judicial police told Portuguese media.
Dry thunderstorms are frequent when falling water evaporates before reaching the ground because of high temperatures. Portugal, like most southern European countries, is prone to forest fires in the dry summer months. Authorities had previously said that degree heat in recent days might have played a part in the inferno about 95 miles northeast of Lisbon.
62 killed in Portugal forest fires, many dying in their cars as flames sweep road
About firefighters have been trying to put out the fires since Saturday, Gomes said. A huge wall of thick smoke and bright red flames towered over the tops of trees near houses in the wooded region. Local resident Isabel Brandao told the Associated Press that she had feared for her life. I never thought it would come to this side," she said.
We were afraid the fire would reach us. RTP showed terrifying images of several people on a road trying to escape the intense smoke that had reduced visibility to a few yards. A young man shared a bottle of water with a distraught woman as she stumbled down the road. Gomes said that at least 16 people were killed when their vehicles were engulfed by flames on a road between the towns of Figueiro dos Vinhos and Castanheira de Pera, and three others died from smoke inhalation in Figueiro dos Vinhos. No information was immediately given on how the others were killed.
Prime Minister Antonio Costa said that firefighting crews were having difficulties in approaching the area because the fire was "very intense. Portugal's civil protection agency, which coordinates the firefighting efforts, issued a warning of the increased risk for forest fires Friday. Whew, I'm glad this is finally done ;o; this took a little over 5 hours obviously not all in one sitting to complete- Here is my finished contest entry for!
The idea of the contest was to either draw any Warrior Cats villain as a more innocent kitten I mean, it's not like you don't see kittens running around and murdering cats the second they are born and what not- , or to draw a scene that may have happened if any cat in the series had a change of heart.
The text below may contain spoilers but yo This is the scene at the end of 'Night Whispers' where, when Flametail's StarClan spirit becomes lost in the Dark Forest, Ivypool decides to try to prove her 'loyalty' by attempting to kill him. However, Tigerheart stops her, and thus Flametail makes it safely to StarClan. But what if he had decided loyalty mattered more than kin?
What if he had let his brother die at Ivypool's paws? What if he eventually felt more connection to the Dark Forest than his kin and clanmates? I mean, Jayfeather might never have been proven innocent after Dawnpelt accused him of drowning Flametail, and though of course it is mentioned that when Flametail went to StarClan, he preferred to hide at first Littlecloud may never have been able to communicate with him.
Second, think of the extra guilt built up on Ivypool, and maybe even Tigerheart himself. I have no idea if anybody has used this idea yet, I just thought it'd be a cool idea to try out :,0 If you also have thoughts about this I'm always open to hear them! Add a Comment:. Load All Images.
