Storm warning (and the triumphant return of phonetics)

By johnboy 26 January 2013 24

The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) is urging the community to consider the weather before heading out for Australia Day festivities in the coming hours.

The Bureau of Meteorology had issued a warn in for severe stirms in the ACT and surrounding region over the next several hours producing damaging winds and large hailstones.

ACTSES units are on standby to respond to calls for help from the public if required but residents should undertake the following actions to be prepared:

o Shelter pets and animals;
o Shelter vehicles or cover with blankets to minimise damage;
o Disconnect electrical appliances from the power; and
o Keep a list of emergency numbers handy.

The ACTSES also urges the community to monitor conditions when storms are forecast via the ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) website www.esa.act.gov.au ESA Twitter and Facebook accounts, Canberra Connect Call Centre on 13 22 81 and the Bureau of Meteorology website http://www.bom.gov.au/act/

Groan – just caught an ACT Government representative on the ABC radio news promising the Queensland flood victims “media representatives” by way of help, via the Queensland Government. Not brawn, not sandbagging, not mop and bucket action. As if to underline the misperception of Canberra amongst Queenslanders. How embarrassing!

You may want to reread the article.

We’re on standby to help with rescues, sandbagging, clean-up, etc. Exactlyas we did two years ago when the place was last flattened.

Now Thumper—that wouldn’t suit Masquara’s unerring anti-ALP spin would it? ;-/
