The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) have completed 485 requests for assistance since Sunday morning, following recent rain and strong winds.

Crews from ACTSES, ACT Fire & Rescue and Transport Canberra & City Services responded to a number calls for help. Many homes were revisited after the recent hailstorm, responding to leaks as a result of roof damage.

The ACT Emergency Services Communications Centre and the Access Canberra call centre supported crews by providing advice and reassurance to the community.
