By Canfan - 24 June 2014 1

The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) has received a total of nine calls for help since 4pm yesterday due to the wet and windy weather.

ACTSES volunteers and ACT Fire & Rescue attended to leaking roofs as well as fallen trees and branches. Minor damage reported with most calls for help in Canberra’s northern suburbs.

One residence in Macgregor experienced a partial ceiling collapse.

The Bureau of Meteorology has reissued the Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds across the ACT.

Residents who require storm or flood assistance can call the ACTSES on 132 500.
