Karlgarin storm clean-up continuesFriday January 18, 2013 - 15:15 EDT
Authorities from numerous agencies are continuing to help the tiny Western Australian wheatbelt town of Karlgarin recover from a severe storm which caused widespread damage.
Tuesday evening's storm tore the roofs off houses and several key buildings, including the church, post office and general store.
State and volunteer emergency service crews from nearby towns are continuing to help affected residents, while Main Roads' staff will continue clearing large amounts of debris from roads today.
Power has been restored to most homes but it has been unsafe to reconnect about 150 properties in the areas that were severely damaged.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services is expecting to hand over management of the recovery effort soon.
