Damaging winds to strike Victoria

Guy Dixon, Tuesday October 15, 2013 - 18:17 EDT

A cold front will cause northerly winds to become very strong in
Victoria during Wednesday afternoon, before the front is expected to
hit the south west coast late Wednesday night.

Winds in excess of about 100 km/h are predicted and could result in
widespread damage to areas in the North Central, North East, South
West, Central, West and South Gippsland and East Gippsland.

Winds speeds of this magnitude can often cause damage to power lines
and unsecured items around the house. It is also advised to take
caution around large trees as there is a high risk of injury or damage
to property from falling branches.

A severe weather warning has been issued.

A small period of relief from the wild weather will occur before
another front brings strong winds to the south of the state on
Thursday. Winds are expected to finally dissipate by Thursday
afternoon.
