The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) has now received a total of 59 calls for help following last night’s storm.
ACTSES volunteers and ACT Fire & Rescue have responded to jobs mostly relating to trees and branches across roads, driveways and pathways with the majority in Canberra’s southern suburbs.
Firefighters have been called to a home at Griffith after part of a tree had damaged a carport. Asbestos sheeting was dislodged and firefighters have cordoned off the area as a precaution and waiting for WorkSafe ACT to investigate.
Residents who require storm or flood assistance can call the ACTSES on 132 500.
