Most calls for help have been related to damage caused by strong winds including fallen trees and flying debris.

Strong winds are expected to continue until tomorrow and the ACTSES advises the Canberra community to be mindful of their surroundings, not to stand or park their vehicles under trees and to stay away from fallen power lines.
