Update eight – 506 calls to ACTSES for help

The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) has now received 506 calls for help following yesterday’s storms.

Four volunteer units have been stood up to deal with 166 outstanding requests.

Over half of all jobs received were for flooding. There was also major damage to roof structures including ceilings and tiles.

Tuggeranong, Woden and Weston Creek collectively recorded the most storm damage.

ACT Fire & Rescue personnel and ACTSES volunteers rang residents last night to check whether they still needed assistance, with many jobs able to be cleared.

Residents can reach the ACTSES on 132-500.
