severe weather warning issued that includes Albany

Severe Weather Warning

IDW28001
Severe Weather Warning
for damaging winds
for people in the South West and South Coastal forecast districts

Issued at 2:03 pm WST on Friday 5 September 2014.

For people in parts of WA southwest of a line from Bunbury to Albany. This includes people in, near or between the following towns: Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Bridgetown and Albany.
Weather Situation

The passage of a cold front during Saturday is likely to cause DAMAGING WINDS to 100 kilometres per hour that could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY. DAMAGING WINDS are likely to develop near the southwest Capes from 8am Saturday morning and extend throughout the warning area by early Saturday afternoon. Conditions will ease from the west during Saturday afternoon. The strongest winds will occur in coastal parts but damaging winds may still occur over inland areas.

This is typical weather for this time of the year but winds may cause damage to property in areas and make road conditions hazardous.

A stronger front will move through the southwest of the state from Sunday evening into Monday. Severe weather is more likely to occur with the passage of the second front from Sunday evening.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:

Store or weigh down loose objects such as outdoor furniture.
Have an emergency kit with a battery operated radio, torch, spare batteries and first aid kit.
Ensure pets and animals are in a safe area.
Move vehicles under cover.
Boat owners should securely moor their boats.
Campers should find shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams.

If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.

The next warning will be issued by 5:00 pm WST Friday.

This warning is also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's web site at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 213.
