The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rainfall for the ACT and surrounding region. The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) urge Canberrans to #BeStormReady. While the sun is out, now is the time to get ready by: - moving vehicles under cover and away from trees - bringing pets inside - securing any loose items around the home that could blow away in the wind. Further information on how to prepare for a storm is available on the ESA website. In a life-threatening emergency call Emergency Triple Zero (E000).
