The ABC is reporting that the ACT can expect severe storm activity later today with winds predicted up to 120 kph.
Let us hope not as this will cause a fair bit of damage after the recent rain.
As always, call the SES if in need on 6207 8455.
I know the following is common sense, but after ten years of SES stuff, common sense doesn’t seem so common these days.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Move your car under cover or away from trees.
* Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.
* Keep clear of fallen power lines.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* Don’t walk, ride your bike or drive through flood water.
* Unplug computers and appliances.
* Avoid using the phone during the storm.
* Stay indoors away from windows, and keep children and pets indoors as well.
