The State Emergency Service (SES) says it appears south-west Western Australia has mostly escaped damage from a storm that passed over the southern half of the state yesterday.
More than 20 millimetres of rain has fallen in Bunbury since 9:00am (AWST) yesterday.
Parts of the Great Southern and Wheatbelt have experienced their heaviest rainfall in months, with 35mm recorded in Katanning and more than 30mm in Lake Grace and Newdegate.
Heavy falls were also recorded in Perth.
The SES says it received 27 calls for help, mostly for water damage to homes but says all but one was from the metropolitan area, with just one call from Waroona in the south-west.
