🚨🚨⛈⛈ WEATHER UPDATE ⛈⛈🚨🚨We know we normally talk all things Fire 🔥 but over the next 24 hours, we are expecting some wild weather ⛈ ☔️ Below is directly from the Bureau of Meteorology and the advice is from Victoria State Emergency Service.DAMAGING SOUTHERLY WINDS, averaging 50 to 60 km/h with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h, are expected to develop about western parts of the warning area during the early hours of WEDNESDAY morning, then extend to central and eastern parts of the warning area during WEDNESDAY afternoon and evening.About the southern Gippsland coast and the central and Gippsland ranges, southerly winds are likely to average 60 to 70 km/h overnight WEDNESDAY into THURSDAY, with peak gusts reaching around 110 km/h. Peak gusts about the western Alpine peaks are expected to reach 120 km/h during the same period.Locations which may be affected include Warrnambool, Bendigo, Seymour, Maryborough, Ballarat, Melbourne and Traralgon.The State Emergency Service advises that people should: * If driving conditions are dangerous, safely pull over away from trees, drains, low-lying areas and floodwater. Avoid travel if possible. * Stay safe by avoiding dangerous hazards, such as floodwater, mud, debris, damaged roads and fallen trees. * Be aware - heat, fire or recent storms may make trees unstable and more likely to fall when it's windy or wet. * Check that loose items, such as outdoor settings, umbrellas and trampolines are safely secured. Move vehicles under cover or away from trees. * Stay indoors and away from windows. * If outdoors, move to a safe place indoors. Stay away from trees, drains, gutters, creeks and waterways. * Stay away from fallen powerlines - always assume they are live. * Be aware that in fire affected areas, rainfall run-off into waterways may contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks. Heavy rainfall may also increase the potential for landslides and debris across roads. * Stay informed: Monitor weather warnings, forecasts and river levels at the Bureau of Meteorology website, and warnings through VicEmergency website/app/hotline.
