WIMMERA State Emergency Service units were called out to a number of incidents during Monday night’s severe weather.
Wind gusts reached 91 kilometres an hour in Horsham and Nhill.
SES spokesman Toby Borella said most calls related to trees down, traffic hazards and minor building damage.
“This was consistent with the damaging winds we experienced,” he said.
In Ararat there was a tree down in traffic on Nott Road at 3.57am.
“The tree was blocking the entire road,” Mr Borella said.
“It was cleared by Ararat SES in the early hours of Tuesday morning.”
In Minyip, a building was damaged in Main Street at 8.15am.
Mr Borella said a gum tree fell on the front of the single-storey property.
“It was a residential property and nobody was trapped or injured,” he said.
“Rupanyup SES responded to the incident.”
Rupanyup SES also attended two incidents in Dyer Street, Rupanyup.
Mr Borella said at 8.41am a tree was down in traffic and at 8.29am, a tree fell on private property.
In Warracknabeal, a TV aerial came off a home in Jamouneau Street at 8.21am and in Arnold Street, a carport collapsed at 7.12am.
Mr Borella said Warracknabeal SES responded to both incidents.
“Many volunteers were out and about on Tuesday,” he said.
SES Horsham unit controller Jason Woodhart said the unit received one call-out for the city on Monday night.
“A couple of trees came down over the road on the Henty Highway,” he said.
He said the trees were about 500 metres apart and the unit responded to the incident at 10.46pm.
“Crews cleaned it up pretty quickly and that was the extent of our windstorm damage,” he said.
“There was no need to close the road.
“We got off lightly compared with other areas.”
Horsham Sergeant Julie Bergen said about 20 trees blew down in Horsham.
She said overnight crews told her that all incidents were easily dealt with.
The windy weather also meant a few hiccups for the Horsham Show.
Show sponsorship and promotions co-ordinator Andrea Cross said wind caused some minor problems.
“We lost quite a few marquees to the wind,” she said.
“But we got everything back and they were all nice and secure in time for the show.”
The weather also meant crowd numbers were down.
Bureau of Meteorology data shows Horsham has experienced its fourth warmest September on record.
The average maximum temperature was 18.9 degrees, 0.9 degrees above average.
Stawell’s average temperature was 17.7 degrees, 1.1 degrees above average, and Nhill’s average was 19.6 degrees, 1.1 degrees above average.
