The highest number of rainfall was in the Kinglake area, with 24mm at Wallaby Creek, 23mm in Toorourrong, 22mm in Kinglake and 16mm at Arthurs Creek.

Victoria State Emergency Service North East duty officer Dan Walton said it received six calls overnight in the region, four of them to Kilmore.

“Most of the work that came from the storm was in the Geelong area, and we’re getting in a crew from the North East to help out in South Barwon where it’s really bad,” Mr Walton said.

“There were only four calls made in Kilmore which would be mostly building damage, like missing tiles or roof damage. No houses are inhabitable.

“This storm wasn’t on our radar as something significant coming through, and it went pretty much on course, business as usual.”
