On the morning of 10th March 2015 Tropic Air dispatched an aircraft with key personnel on board, to get a birds-eye view of the extensive damage, and to determine further high-risk zones. With the extreme dry conditions and strong winds, the danger of more fires breaking out are high extremely. Hoping for rain and calmer winds.
