Two homes in northern Tasmania have lost their roofs in strong winds.
Police and the State Emergency Service were called out to a house in Riana about 4:30am when the occupants called to say part of their roof was unattached and about to blow off.
A few minutes later authorities received a call from a home in Preston, reporting the roof had come off.
No-one was injured and the SES helped secure both houses.
The SES's Wayne Richards said in another incident at Wynyard, a woman was trapped in her car when a tree fell across a road.
"The winds have been still quite severe but they haven't created the damage that we were expecting and haven't involved heavy rainfall at the same time," Mr Richards said.
"The winds have eased off to some degree but that's not to say it won't pick up again later.
"Everyone should continue to listen to the weather updates."
In the south, the road from the Springs to the summit of Mt Wellington has been closed due to snow and ice.
