Strange! I'm about 1200 Kms from the recent events in Victoria, but I have received the following today via an SMS !!!
Msg from Vic Police:
Extreme weather in Vic expected Mon night & Tues. High wind & fire risk. Listen to local ABC Radio for emergency updates. Do not reply to this

I understand the need to keep the public informed of "Local" events or requirements but this to me appears to be a knee jerk reaction from the Victorian Police! I'm sure that they (Vic Police) are just trying to cover their ass so that it can't be said that they didn't try to do anything!
