THE rain has hit Canberra’s north the hardest with the ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) saying a majority of the calls for help have been from the north.
Since 1pm today (March 4), they have received 67 requests, with the worst of the weather still to come.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the rain will continue through the afternoon and into the evening with heavier falls expected tomorrow.
Volunteer crews from ACTSES as well as crews from ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) have revisited several homes previously damaged by hail requiring additional temporary repairs.
Crews from Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) are also out and are responding to reports of standing water on roads caused by blocked storm water drains.
The ESA advises that due to increased demand for help there may be a longer than usual wait time.
Residents who require assistance for storm or flood damage, or if their situation changes can call 132 500.
