The State Department has issued a travel advisory for
Australia because of the wildfires that have been raging across the country.
Noting the fire season is one of the worst in history, the
State Department says tourists should exercise caution and consider postponing
their trip to affected areas.
It also warns those traveling to areas not directly affected
by fires to check the air quality before traveling.
The advisory contains a list of links for local and national
fire and emergency entities providing fire and air quality information.
