Emergency services in Canberra were kept busy on Wednesday after wild weather downed multiple trees and caused traffic woes on several roads from Tuesday evening.
Fierce wind gusts brought trees crashing down across the city with the ACT State Emergency Service responding to more than 300 calls for help as of Wednesday afternoon.
The Bureau of Meteorology forecast winds of up to 90 kilometres an hour would continue through Wednesday afternoon and ease in the evening.
A number of roads remained closed on Wednesday afternoon, including Bendora Road, Mount Franklin Road at Piccadilly Circus, Two Sticks Road, Orroral Ridge Road, Booroomba Rocks Road, Angle Crossing and Sunshine Crossing.
Fire trails in Namadgi National Park were also closed and the government said Corin Road would close at the Woods Reserve gate at 6pm on Wednesday.
The ACT Government urged motorists to drive carefully alone Corin Road - which was closed earlier due to black ice - and to avoid driving to the Brindabella mountains until the weather settles.
Some aircraft reportedly missed their approaches into Canberra Airport and were forced to return to Sydney on Tuesday evening.
One woman described the chaos as her flight from Brisbane tried to land at Canberra Airport.
"The pilot tried to land twice but both attempts aborted. It was very hairy and scary on the plane with the attempts and then several people vomiting," she wrote on social media.
Tuesday night's storm wiped out power to a number of Canberra suburbs, as well as traffic lights in some areas.
The ACT State Emergency Services had received 310 calls for help by 4.30pm on Wednesday, due to the wet and windy weather. They urged people to avoid fallen power lines and trees.
Several roads including William Webb Drive, near Owen Dixon Drive, Laycock Place in Holt, and Ginninderra Drive east bound, were affected by fallen trees on Wednesday.
The wild weather also caused blackouts and disruptions to ActewAGL's network which saw more than 12,500 customers affected.
Most power outages were caused by trees on powerlines. Power was restored to most customers during the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Crews attends 128 jobs across Canberra, prioritising areas that were risky to public safety, such as fallen powerlines.
As of Wednesday afternoon, some suburbs, including parts of Fisher, Wanniassa, Kambah, Campbell, Gowrie, Aranda, Evatt, Coppin's Crossing, Chapman and Hall, were still affected by outages.
NSW police also asked people to delay driving to the Jindabyne area because of dangerous conditions on the roads.
"Snow and ice have made travel conditions particularly treacherous, with police and other emergency services responding to a number of traffic incidents," police said.
"Those still planning to use local roads should exercise extreme caution and be patient due to expected delays. Chains should be fitted to vehicles at Berridale prior to entering the Jindabyne area."
