THE ACT Emergency Services Agency is urging the community to get storm ready ahead of tomorrow’s (October 31) predicted heavy rainfall. 

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting heavy rainfall for the ACT tomorrow, with a chance of thunderstorms in the morning and afternoon.

“For those with existing damage from recent storm events, please endeavour to complete maintenance in advance of the coming weather,” says an ACT ESA spokesperson.

“The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) advises to never enter or drive through floodwaters. Floodwaters can be several metres deep, rise quickly and move fast.”
