SES completes wild weather operationsWednesday August 21, 2013 - 10:23 EST
The State Emergency Service (SES) says it has wrapped up operations in south-west Victoria after several days of wild weather.
The SES received about 200 calls for help across the south-west, including for minor structural damage and fallen trees.
About 30 requests for help were received from Portland, Heywood, Warrnambool and Port Fairy.
A spokesman says the SES is monitoring a forecast for strong wind in the south-west later this week.
