WILD weather caused some damage around Mandurah at the weekend.
This is a sign of things to come according to Mandurah State Emergency Services manager Chris Stickland.
He said the weather was not as bad as the bureau of meteorology predicted.
�There was so much rain that people�s homes flooded,� he said.
�We had 20 jobs throughout Mandurah � 10 on Saturday and 10 on Sunday.�
He said people need to learn from the weather at the weekend and get themselves storm ready.
�This is a wake up for storm season,� he said.
�Storm season damage costs are more significant than fires and cyclones.
�It�s important for people to prepare.�
Mandurah�s government rain gauge is broken and recorded zero rain, Mr Stickland said.
The SES rain gauge recorded 30cm of rain from 12am Saturday through to Sunday.
�The further south west you went the worse the weather was,� he said.
�Some areas had more rain though and some had less.�
There was no major damage or significant outages around town.
25 SES volunteers worked on 20 jobs.
