Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

Wild weather stretches emergency services

By Michael Reid - 13 July 2016 4


The ACT State Emergency Service has received more than 300 requests for assistance over the past 24 hours due to the wet and windy weather across Canberra.

Emergency Service crews supported by ACT Fire and Rescue, the ACT Rural Fire Service and Transport Canberra and City Services have completed 245 jobs, the majority for fallen trees and branches on roads and property.

Canberrans are urged to stay clear of fallen power lines and trees and be aware that trees and branches could fall in windy conditions.

Residents should stay indoors, clear of windows and stay away from creeks, drains, streams and gutters.

For more information on road closures visit or Access Canberra on 13 22 81.

For storm and flood assistance call the ACTSES on 132 500.
