Not only does today, mark the start of the bushfire danger period for the Wingecarribee, it also marks the start of the storm season.
The SES is expecting a wetter than normal season and Inspector Dylan Whitelaw said people need to be prepared and aware of the risks.
"Makesure your gutters are clean and that trees near your house are trimmed back and not going to cause any issues.
"When there are severe weather warnings for damaging winds, makesure any loose items are tied down,''Mr. Whitelaw said.
