Fires burn across NSW

Fire crews were fighting more than 20 out-of-control blazes across NSW on Thursday night, after winds and high temperatures combined to cause havoc across the state.
Winds in Sydney reached 96km/h at Kurnell on Thursday, with temperatures nudging 32 degrees at Observatory Hill at 11 am.
The SES responded to more than 300 calls for help within Sydney, mostly due to trees toppling onto homes and power lines.
More than 4000 Sydney homes were without power at the peak of disruptions, mainly in Lane Cove, Rozelle and Chatswood.
But by Thursday evening, power had been restored to most homes, with only 100 still disconnected across the city.
Nearly 500 firefighters were battling 50 fires across NSW on Thursday night, more than 20 of which were burning out of control.
Firefighters were particularly concerned about fires at Taree and Great Lakes. A handful of homes was under threat at each location.
The Pacific Highway at Taree was closed in both directions.
It was believed the high temperatures and wind were responsible for the outbreak, but at least one fire, near a campsite at Lake Macquarie, was the result of suspected arson. Police said four teenage boys had been arrested on suspicion of igniting a number of fires in a conservation area.
''We'll probably get a day of reprieve [on Friday] before some warm and windy weather on Saturday,'' a Rural Fire Service spokesman said.

'Asesino de portaaviones' ruso zarpa rumbo al Mediterráneo


El crucero de misiles ruso Moskvá, buque insignia de la Flota rusa del Mar Negro apodado por la OTAN 'asesino de portaaviones', ha sido enviado al Mediterráneo oriental en vez de al puerto de Mindelo (Cabo Verde), donde debía recalar inicialmente. "Los planes del destacamento naval bajo la bandera del contraalmirante Valeri Kúlikov tuvieron que ser modificados. En lugar de recalar en el puerto de Cabo Verde, el crucero Moskvá se dirigirá hacia el estrecho de Gibraltar. Después de unos diez días, entrará en el Mediterráneo oriental, donde sustituirá como buque insignia de la agrupación operativa de la Marina rusa al gran buque antisubmarino de la Flota del Pacífico Admiral Panteleev", aseguró un oficial ruso a la agencia Interfax bajo condición de anonimato. El crucero Moskvá, buque insignia de la Flota rusa del Mar Negro, zarpó de Sebastopol el 2 de julio al Atlántico norte, donde se dirigió una agrupación naval rusa compuesta por buques de las flotas rusas del Mar Negro, del Norte y del Báltico. A principios de agosto la nave visitó el puerto cubano de La Habana y el 13 de agosto entró en el puerto nicaragüense de Corinto, luego de atravesar el Canal de Panamá. El 27 de agosto la Flota rusa visitó el puerto venezolano de La Guaira. En el océano Atlántico el crucero efectuó lanzamientos de prueba de su arma principal: los misiles anti-buque P -1000 Vulcán (Volcano).
