Geelong Floods

Severe thunderstorms that hit Geelong yesterday have caused millions of dollars in damage, the city's Mayor says.

More than 150 homes in Geelong were flooded when the city received twice its average January rainfall in just two hours on Wednesday..

The SES said most of the 500 calls they received were related to building damage, fallen trees and flash flooding.

The worst hit area was Avalon, near Geelong, which experienced a one-in-100-year storm.

It recorded 72 millimetres of rain - 54 of which fell in 30 minutes.
