Storms can happen anywhere at anytime of the year and are the most frequent emergencies affecting Victorians. Storms can be accompanied by torrential rain, strong winds, large hailstones and lightning and may result in flash flooding, unroofing of buildings, and damage to trees and powerlines all of which can pose a significant safety risk to people, animals, households and businesses. Recent storms have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.
