Update - Damaging winds impacting ACT

The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ACTSES) has responded to 124 calls for help from the community following damaging winds over the last 24 hours.

ACTSES, ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R), ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) and Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) are today responding to 20 outstanding jobs.

Most calls for help were due to fallen trees across the Territory’s south including Tuggeranong and Calwell with only a few jobs reported on the northside of Canberra.

ACTSES encourages the Canberra community to remain alert, avoid parking their vehicles under trees and stay away from fallen power lines.

Call 132 500 if you need help during storms or floods. In a life-threatening emergency, always call Triple Zero (000).
