                Time of issue: 11:41 AM
                Date of issue: 16 July 2018


                Take action with severe weather coming in parts of the Lower South West, Great Southern

                If you live in parts of the South Coastal and South West districts you should take action and stay safe with severe weather to come.

                Locations which may be affected include Albany, Mount Barker, Augusta, Bremer Bay, Denmark, Walpole and Windy Harbour.

                This weather is not unusual for this time of year, but could damage homes and make travel dangerous.

                WHAT TO DO:

                DFES advises you to:

                • If outside find safe shelter away from trees, powerlines, storm water drains and streams.
                • Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.
                • Unplug electrical appliances and avoid using landline telephones if there is lightning.
                • If there is flooding, create your own sandbags by using pillow cases filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home.
                • If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.
                IF DRIVING:
                • Do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.
                • Slow down, turn your lights on and keep a safe distance from other drivers.
                • Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen powerlines and loose debris.
                • If it is raining heavily and you cannot see, pull over and park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears.

                • Take care in areas that have been flooded and be careful driving on gravel roads as surfaces will be slippery and muddy, and vehicles could become bogged.

                People are being urged to do what they can to help themselves, if it is safe to do so, before calling the SES for assistance


                WEATHER DETAILS:

                At 16/07/2018 11:30:00 the Bureau of Meteorology advised a strong cold front will move through southern parts of the State during Monday. Showers associated with the front may produce damaging winds to 100 kilometres per hour and could cause damage to homes and property. Damaging winds are likely to develop over coastal areas to the west of Albany, before extending through the remainder of the warning area by 3pm Monday. Conditions should then start to ease from the west during Monday evening. Tides between Augusta and Bremer Bay are likely to rise above the normal high tide mark with very rough seas and potential flooding of low-lying coastal areas. Damaging surf conditions are likely which could cause beach erosion. Cape Leeuwin recorded a wind gust of 96 kilometres per hour 10:15am Monday. People in the south of WA experience a front as windy as this about 5 times per year.


                ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

                Roads have not been closed.

                Take extra care on the roads and do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.

                  Category: Storm Alert Summary: Take action with severe weather coming in parts of the Lower South West, Great Southern Content:

                  The following alert has been issued by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).


                  Time of issue: 08:53 AM
                  Date of issue: 16 July 2018


                  Take action with severe weather coming in parts of the Lower South West, Great Southern

                  If you live in South Coastal and parts of South West districts you should take action and stay safe with severe weather to come.

                  Locations which may be affected include Albany, Mount Barker, Augusta, Bremer Bay, Walpole and Windy Harbour.

                  This weather is not unusual for this time of year, but could damage homes and make travel dangerous.

                  WHAT TO DO:

                  DFES advises you to:

                  • If outside find safe shelter away from trees, powerlines, storm water drains and streams.
                  • Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.
                  • Unplug electrical appliances and avoid using landline telephones if there is lightning.
                  • If there is flooding, create your own sandbags by using pillow cases filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home.
                  • If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.
                  IF DRIVING:
                  • Do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.
                  • Slow down, turn your lights on and keep a safe distance from other drivers.
                  • Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen powerlines and loose debris.
                  • If it is raining heavily and you cannot see, pull over and park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears.

                  • Take care in areas that have been flooded and be careful driving on gravel roads as surfaces will be slippery and muddy, and vehicles could become bogged.

                  People are being urged to do what they can to help themselves, if it is safe to do so, before calling the SES for assistance


                  WEATHER DETAILS:

                  At 16/07/2018 08:40:00 the Bureau of Meteorology advised a strong cold front will move through southern parts of the State during Monday. Showers associated with the front may produce damaging winds to 100 kilometres per hour and could cause damage to homes and property. Damaging winds are likely to develop over coastal areas to the west of Albany by 11am Monday, before extending through the remainder of the warning area by 3pm Monday. Conditions should then start to ease from the west during Monday evening. Tides between Augusta and Bremer Bay are likely to rise above the normal high tide mark with very rough seas and potential flooding of low-lying coastal areas. Damaging surf conditions are likely which could cause beach erosion. People in the south of WA experience a front as windy as this about five times per year.


                  ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

                  Roads have not been closed.

                  Take extra care on the roads and do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.

                  Road information may also be available by calling Main Roads WA on 138 138 or visiting www.mainroads.wa.gov.au or by contacting your local Shire.


                  WHAT EMERGENCY SERVICES ARE DOING:

                  • DFES is monitoring the situation.


                  IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE:

                  • If your home has been badly damaged by a storm, call the SES on 132 500
                  • In a life threatening situation call 000

                  After a storm SES volunteers make temporary repairs to homes that have been badly damaged, such as roofs that have been ripped off or large fallen trees on homes or cars. Please contact your insurance company to organise permanent repairs.
