Victoria’s Chief Health Officer warns a high risk of epidemic thunderstorm asthma has been forecast in the WIMMERA and SOUTH WEST weather districts today; due to the combination of grass pollen and severe thunderstorms.
Current Bureau of Meteorology advice is that the storm activity will be in the late afternoon (after 5pm).
If you have asthma or hayfever go inside, close doors and windows and avoid wind gusts before and during the storm. Carry your reliever medication at all times today.
