Most of the world probably doesn't know about the heat wave that has hit Melbourne (and indeed the rest of Victoria) over the past few weeks. Every day was above 40 degrees C!
At one particular home in Victoria the temperature has been above 44 degrees all week and they are forecasting another week of 40+ temperatures. Power is failing, trains have stopped running because tracks are buckling under the heat . Its just scorching. It seems that the people are not the only ones suffering.
Check out these photos of a little Koala which just walked onto a back porch looking for a bit of heat relief. The woman filled up a bucket for it and this is what happened!
