Across the Western District
Wild weather has blanketed the state’s south-west and it is not letting up for another couple of days yet.
Towns surrounding Hamilton were hit by severe winds, in particular the Cavendish region, with trees coming down in paddocks and on some roads.
Many incidents were logged by the State Emergency Service in Hamilton, but it’s believed many roads in the northern parts have been impacted but not reported as of yet.
There are current road blockages at Gatum on the Cavendish-Glendinning Road, two roads at Vasey, Budd's Lane and Vasey-Gatum Road, Portland Lane at Poolaijelo and Wades Road at Kanagulk.
