Storms can happen anywhere and at any time of the year. They are common in the ACT during storm season (from September to the end of March), but it is important to stay ready all year round.

Severe storms may cause major damage. They may be accompanied by torrential rain, strong winds, large hailstones and lightning. Storms can cause flash flooding, unroof buildings and damage trees and power lines.
