Stronger weather to hit South West
Department of Fire and Emergency Services has sent out fresh warnings for severe weather and flooding in parts of the South West with another cold front due.
The warning comes as State Emergency Service crews were kept busy overnight responding to five call-outs across Bunbury.
The jobs included roof damage to homes but there was no significant damage, according to DFES.
The fresh warning asks homeowners between Bunbury and Augusta to be prepared for a cold front predicted to hit the region this evening.
“Thunderstorms and showers associated with the front may bring damaging winds to 100kmh and could cause damage to homes and property in the warning area,” the warning reads.
“Isolated gusts in exposed coastal areas south of Augusta may reach 125 kilometres per hour.
“Moderate to heavy rainfall is possible and may lead to localised flooding.
“Flood Watches are current for the Lower West and South West districts.”
A flood warning is in place for the Harvey River catchment area.
A second stronger cold front is expected to pass over the South West during Sunday night and early Monday morning, with damaging winds and moderate to heavy falls likely.
Bureau of Meteorology recorded 35.8mm of rain at 9am today and wind gusts have reached up to 52kmh this morning in Bunbury.
