2:25pm Wednesday 6 July 2011 – Update nine-105 calls for help following windy and wet weather The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) volunteers and ACT Fire Brigade have received a total of 105 calls for help since 6am yesterday following windy and wet weather.
Apparently the worst hit areas are Harrison, Palmerston, Torrens, Theodore and Wanniassa.
The Bureau’s had this to say:
A deep low pressure system over the Southern Tasman Sea has moved east towards New Zealand overnight resulting in the westerly airflow easing over NSW though strong to locally gale force winds are expected to continue today. A second system, a strong cold front will cross eastern NSW early Thursday morning. Damaging gale force winds are expected to become more general over the warning area this evening and early Thursday.
Blizzard conditions are forecast for Alpine parts of the Australian Capital Territory and Snowy Mountains forecast districts.
