Severe Thunderstorm Warning - 27/12/23 - 15:37

Update 3:45 PM: The Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been reissued to include the entire ACT region. Storms continue to develop.


Published 3:08 PM: The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for damaging winds, large hailstones, and heavy rainfall.

The ACT State Emergency Service advises the community to:

- Move your car under cover and away from trees;
- Secure or put away loose items;
- Keep at least 8 metres away from fallen power lines;
- Stay indoors away from windows;
- Never drive, walk or ride through floodwater.

If you need support during storms and floods call the ACT State Emergency Service on 132 500. 

During a large storm event, the number of requests for assistance can climb quickly and exceed available resources, particularly during the holiday period. 

If there’s a threat to life or property, rest assured emergency services will always be available. 

However, for smaller jobs, like a leaking roof, or water that has subsided, sometimes it can take additional time for crews to attend, your patience is appreciated.
The weather situation can change rapidly, check for weather updates and warnings.

In a life-threatening emergency call Triple-Zero (000).
