Take action with severe thunderstorms coming in parts of the Midwest-Gascoyne, Goldfields-Midlands, Perth Metropolitan

If you live in Lower West, Central Wheat Belt and parts of Goldfields and Central West districts you should take action and stay safe with severe thunderstorms to come.

Locations which may be affected include Kalgoorlie, Merredin, Moora, Northam, Perth and Yanchep.

This weather is not unusual for this time of year, but severe weather may occur in some parts of the warning area.

WHAT TO DO:
DFES advises you to:

If outside find safe shelter away from trees, powerlines, storm water drains and streams.

Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.

Unplug electrical appliances and avoid using landline telephones if there is lightning.

If there is flooding, create your own sandbags by using pillow cases filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home.

If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.

IF DRIVING:

Do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.

Slow down, turn your lights on and keep a safe distance from other drivers.

Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen powerlines and loose debris.

If it is raining heavily and you cannot see, pull over and park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears.

Take care in areas that have been flooded and be careful driving on gravel roads as surfaces will be slippery and muddy, and vehicles could become bogged.

People are being urged to do what they can to help themselves, if it is safe to do so, before calling the SES for assistance

At 25/02/2020 16:40:00 the Bureau of Meteorology advised a warm and humid air mass is in place over northern parts of the South West Land Division, while a surface trough lies near the west coast. Satellite imagery at 4.30pm shows severe thunderstorms within the warning area.
