A mini tornado that tore through Wyndham Vale this morning has left Eppalock Drive looking like a war zone.

Wyndham SES’ unit commander Laurie Russell said a number of homes on the street have sustained extensive damage to roofs and fencing.


“The damage varies from home to home, we’re currently dealing with a total of 78 jobs,” he said.

“We have two crews with four volunteers out at the moment, and we’re expecting to get some help from other units.”

He said he believed Wyndham Vale is the hardest hit area in the state from this morning’s storms.

A tree also came down on Point Cook Road at around 7am, not far from Seabrook Primary School.

Police were at the scene diverting traffic.

Mr Russell said due to the high volume of calls, the SES passed the call-out to council.

More to come.
