An approaching low pressure system and cold front will produce areas of heavy rainfall southwest of a line from Mandurah to Katanning to Albany.

The period of heaviest rain is expected to be from Sunday evening through to early Monday morning and may cause flash flooding.

At 1pm, radar and satellite imagery showed areas of rain over the warning area with heavy rain in the vicinity of Bunbury and Collie.

A flood watch has also been issued for the South West District, for further details please refer to http://梧桐夜网bom.gov419论坛/wa/warnings/.

Between 9am and 1pm: Acton Park (near Busselton) recorded 14.4 millimetres of rain and Bunbury 12 millimetres.

Windy conditions are currently being experienced about the Southwest Capes. Cape Leeuwin recorded a wind gust of 74 kilometres per hour at 12:14pm.

This will continue and extend to remaining coastal parts of the warning area during the afternoon.

The risk of damaging winds is now expected with the passage of the low pressure system from late Sunday night into early Monday morning in coastal parts between Lancelin and Bunbury, including coastal parts of the Perth Metropolitan area.

Damaging winds to 100 kilometres per hour could cause damage to homes and property.

Conditions will ease during Monday morning.

Higher than normal tides are still likely in coastal parts.

This is typical weather for this time of year but winds and particularly the rain may cause damage to property and make road conditions hazardous.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:

If outside find safe shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams.Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.Unplug electrical appliances and do not use land line telephones if there is lightning.If there is flooding, create your own sandbags by using pillow cases filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home.If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.Do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.Slow down and turn your headlights on.Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen power lines and loose debris.If it is raining heavily and you can not see, pull over and park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears.If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.

POLICE have been pleased by the results of a weekend deer hunting operation, with only one shooter caught in breach of the rules.

Officers joined staff from the Game Management Authority on Friday and Saturday, and targeted hunters in the Buckland Valley.

They spoke to about 90 people and stopped about 40 vehicles, and only detected one weapons offence.

A 27-year-old Melbourne man had his gun seized after being caught driving on the Mount Selwyn Track while the weapon wasloaded on Saturday.

Police will apply to have the gun destroyed.

The results are in stark contrast to a similar operation in May which saw 16 people caught breaking the law.

Five guns were seized and police expressed concern about the number of offences that had been detected.

But Leading Senior Constable David Jenkin of Myrtleford police said deer hunters appeared to be getting the message.

“We did really well at the weekend,” he said.

“We were impressed by the results and the attitude of the hunters.

“The operation was conducted as a follow-up to the one in May and we only seized one gun.”

Senior Constable Jenkin said the the Game Management Authority had also issued tickets to people without current game licences, and police also issued a penalty notice to a person who blocked a road with their car.

“The hunters are being vigilant in the carriage and storage of ammunition,” he said.

“They’re observing the property boundaries and national park boundaries and they’re generally trying to be compliant with the regulations.

“I would say I was happy with the level of compliance we had.”

Seven people had taken part in the operation.

Senior Constable Jenkin said the operations would continue to be conducted at random times.

“These operations with continue throughout the year,” he said.

“I hope to see continued compliance.

“It was quite pleasing to see the results.”

YACKANDANDAH wildlife shelter Kangaloola has again hit hard times, six months after a shortage of cash almost forced its closure.

The not-for-profit shelter has enough money for now, but desperately needs more –along with volunteer help –to keep its vital work going.

A lack of native grasses in bushland across the area has resulted in a steady growth in the number of animals having to be cared for by Glenda and Ron Elliott and their helpers.

“We’ve got so many babies at the moment,” Mrs Elliott said on Friday.

“We’re rescuing full-grown wombats in the town of Wodonga that are coming from God knows where, they’re justcrossing the highway.”

Mrs Elliott said there were a lot of places in bushland that were just bare dirt.

“It used to be grass. We’ve had a lot of rain in the past few weeks, and that’s been really good, but we still need a lot more,” she said.

“It doesn’t rain like it use to. And the trees are in such bad condition with no canopy, so therefore the frost gets in on the native grasses.”

The shelter received an outpouring of financial and other support after it was revealed last December that it was facing closure.

It needed at least $3000 to keep operating beyond January, though that was enough for only six months.

Mrs Elliott said “things are OK” now, “but we always need extra support because it is an ongoing thing”.

“People have beenfantastic with help, including financially, butthere’s just more and more animals needing help.”

It costs the Elliott’s $970 a month for milk, plus another $400 to $500 for specialised milks.At least$160 a week is needed for hay, blood tests cost $200 to $300 and X-rays $150.

“It’s just on and on and on just for the basics,” Mrs Elliott said.

Anyone wanting to offer ongoing support is welcome to provide regular pledges.

The Elliotts would also like to hear from anyone who can provide strategic help, as they received from one supporter at Baranduda.

““Apparently there’s a lot of government grants around, but we don’t have time to do that and we don’t know how to do it or where to go,” Mrs Elliottsaid.

“It’s a big shelter, probably one of the biggest in Victoria and the cost is just amazing.”

Volunteers who were willing to help regardless of the weather are also wanted.

“A lot of people say they’ll come out and help but they don’t, they say it’s too cold or too wet,” she said.

Anyone wanting to help or report injured wildlife could do so via the website atkangaloolawildlifeshelter.org419论坛and by phoning (02) 6027 0814 or 0407 412 750.
