The dust is being carried by strong winds, in excess of 57 km/h, from northern NSW.
Nevertheless, with the strong winds comes a severe fire danger and a total fire ban.
Emergency Services says that if a fire starts at the fire danger level of severe, it may be uncontrollable and move quickly. Flames may be higher than rooftops.
There is a high risk of falling trees and branches. Don’t park cars near or under trees and take care when travelling on the road to avoid falling debris.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are urged to be vigilant and exercise caution across Canberra and in rural areas.
For emergency damage assistance call 132 500. For life-threatening emergencies call 000.
