                        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:

                        • 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
