Melbourne Cleans Up After Wild Weather

Strong winds that lashed most of Victoria will ease as people assess the damage and begin to clean up.

The SES received more than 400 calls for assistance on Sunday as winds up to 93km/h hit Melbourne.

Hundreds lost power, with fallen trees causing damage to power lines.

Heavy rain was also predicted overnight, with totals up to 50mm expected to fall in Melbourne and outer areas of the east, west and central region.

Showers will continue in Melbourne during the day on Monday, while winds will ease to 45km/h.

Two men had to be rescued by water police on Sunday when their dinghy capsized in Corio Bay.

A man also had to be treated for hypothermia after his kayak capsized in Mentone and drifted more than 20km south to Oliver's Hill, near Mt Eliza.
