Time of issue: 11:41 PM
Date of issue: 25 May 2018


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

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

Locations which may be affected include Albany, Katanning, Manjimup, Mount Barker, Narrogin and Walpole.

The passage of the low is expected to produce conditions windier than a typical cold front and is likely to produce the kind of weather that is only seen around twice a year over the SW corner of WA.

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

Storm - Take Action Now for Goldfields-Midlands, Perth Metropolitan, South West, Lower South West, Great Southern

EmergencyWA Alerts & Warnings -

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

Please note changes throughout

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


Time of issue: 04:28 PM
Date of issue: 25 May 2018


Take action with severe weather coming in parts of the Goldfields-Midlands, Perth Metropolitan, South West, Lower South West, Great Southern

If you live in Lower West, South West, South Coastal, South East Coastal and parts of Great Southern and Central Wheat Belt districts you should take action and stay safe with severe weather to come.

Locations which may be affected include the Perth Metropolitan area, Albany, Bunbury, Esperance, Mandurah, Manjimup, Margaret River, Mount Barker, Narrogin, Norseman and Northam.

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 25/05/2018 16:03:00 the Bureau of Meteorology advised a deep low is passing to the south of the state with severe weather conditions over southwest WA. At 3:45 pm, radar and satellite imagery showed showers and isolated thunderstorms over southwest parts of WA. A line of thunderstorms lies to the east of Esperance and is moving towards the southeast. A deep low pressure system will continue to move eastwards and pass to the south of the state during Friday and Saturday. DAMAGING WINDS with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour which could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY are possible in coastal parts from Lancelin southwards to Walpole, including the Perth Metropolitan area. The threat of DAMAGING WINDS will extend eastwards and inland to remaining parts of the warning area during the evening. A line of thunderstorms currently to the east of Esperance may produce DAMAGING WINDS until late afternoon or evening. There is a slight risk of DANGEROUS GUSTS in excess of 125 kilometres per hour that could cause SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION TO HOMES AND PROPERTY in localised coastal parts between Bunbury and Walpole. Tides between Lancelin and Walpole are likely to rise ABOVE THE NORMAL HIGH TIDE MARK with VERY ROUGH SEAS and POTENTIAL FLOODING of low-lying coastal areas. This area will extend to Albany and Hopetoun during Saturday morning. DAMAGING SURF CONDITIONS are likely which may cause BEACH EROSION. The strongest wind gusts recorded during Friday include: Cape Leeuwin: 115 km/h, Busselton Jetty: 93 km/h, Rottnest Island: 93 km/h, and Esperance Airport: 91 km/h. The passage of the low is expected to produce conditions windier than a typical cold front and is likely to produce the kind of weather that is only seen around twice a year over the SW corner of WA.


ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

Some roads may be 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 calling your local Shire.


WHAT EMERGENCY SERVICES ARE DOING:

  • Emergency services have answered more than 156 calls for help since 3.00pm yesterday.
  • The majority of calls for assistance have come from the Perth Metropolitan area, Lower South West and Great Southern.
  • State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers respond on a priority basis and people are asked to remain patient.


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.
