Floods and storms are common occurences in the Wangaratta municipality. To prepare your home for storm make sure your gutters, spouting and downpipes are well maintained and clear of debris. Trim and remove branches that overhang or are near your home and keep your yard and surrounds clear of rubbish and clutter.
To prepare for flood make sure that you have an Emergency Plan and that you are aware of whether or not your home, farm or business is vulnerable to flooding.
