Sunbury and Macedon Ranges residents continue to be affected by the Easter weekend weather event, following more than 500 requests for assistance across the state on Monday, April 1.

In a post to Facebook on Tuesday, April 2, Victoria State Emergency Service (VicSES) said volunteers received more than 500 requests for assistance in the past 24 hours to 8am Tuesday.

The most common calls relate to building damage (267), impacts of flooding (117) and fallen trees (72).

Kyneton residents were also previously advised about severe thunderstorms on Monday, April 1, which VicSES said was likely to produce damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding.

Since noon on Monday, April 1, SES Woodend unit volunteers responded to four requests for assistance, while the Gisborne unit had been called to two.

There were two calls from Tylden, and one from Mount Macedon, Riddells Creek and Woodend.

In total, volunteers had three tree down jobs, three flood responses and one for building damage in the area.
