Advisory on Weather Conditions

Published on Monday, 15 August 2022 at 9:43:36 AM

This week is looking a little wet for the region.

The Shire of Carnarvon wishes to advise residents that storms can occur any time of the year. Storms in our region have the potential to cause damaging winds, flash floods, lighting, and hail causing damage to homes, cars, and the environment, as well as disruptions to essential services.

With potential storms starting early this week, this is a good time to check around the home and tidy up for storms. Some things to consider are:

  • Check your roof and gutters and fix any damage
  • Clear gutters and downpipes so they do not overflow after heavy rain
  • Remove any loose material, including broken or missing tiles
  • Trim branches near your home and clear trees from powerlines
  • Put away or tie down any loose material from your yard, balcony, or patio, such as outdoor furniture or trampolines.
  • Check that your home and contents insurance is up to date
  • Plan for a safe place for your pets to be during a storm
  • Prepare an emergency kit with a battery-operated radio, torch, spare batteries and first aid kit.

For all emergencies, call 000

For State Emergency Service assistance, call 132 500
