The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) has now received 11 requests for assistance since yesterday afternoon as a result of the wet weather and gusty winds across the ACT and surrounding areas.
The majority of calls have been due to fallen trees. 3 ACTSES crews are currently active with 9 jobs outstanding.
With these weather conditions expected to continue overnight and into tomorrow, Canberrans are asked to monitor the situation and take precautions.
The ACTSES advises you should:
- Move your car under cover or away from trees
- Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony
- Keep at least 8 metres away from fallen power lines or objects that may be energised, such as fences
- Stay indoors away from windows
