A MAN in his 70s was in a critical but stable condition yesterday after he fell from a roof in Halls Head in the aftermath of a storm on Saturday.

A St Johns Ambulance spokeswoman said the rescue helicopter was sent to a Peelwood Parade oval after the man fell from a roof about 10am on Sunday.

He sustained head injuries and was taken to Royal Perth Hospital.

The storm caused power outages throughout much of Mandurah on Saturday evening.

Mandurah SES manager Chris Stickland said there were 48 callouts to houses without roofs, trees on houses or blocking roads, and trampolines that became airborne, turning them into missiles.

“Wind gusts reached between 80km/h to 90km/h,” he said.

“The worst affected suburbs were Lakelands and Falcon.

“We had 40 volunteers working in five teams.

“We finished at 6pm on Sunday night.”
