Victoria lashed by wild weather

Wild weather has lashed Victoria, but the bureau has warned the worst could yet be to come.

Damaging winds continue to lash the state, with the SES receiving almost 500 calls for help on Tuesday.

Eight kayakers were pulled from the water off Anglesea after apparently ignoring all the warnings and going for a morning paddle.

More than 10,000 homes are without power.

But David Baker, deputy chief officer of the SES, says the worst of the storm is not yet over.

‘The key periods for us are the school pick up and peak hour (on Tuesday),’ he said.

‘Motorists need to be particularly aware at these times.’
