Australia braces for more bushfires

With severe warnings issued, many ravaged by 2009's deadly fires are still struggling.

    The Australian states of Victoria and South Australia have issued "catastrophic" fire warnings as temperatures soar to more than 40 degrees Celsius. 

    There is concern that this year's bushfires could be worse than last February's, which left 173 people dead.

    A year on, communities ravaged by those fires are still struggling.
