Good morning Bendigo!
We had a bit of rain overnight but there doesn't appear to be too much damage.
The SES responded to six requests for assistance in Bendigo - a couple for trees down and a few for minor building damage.
If you had any damage email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day.
A few showers are forecast for today with a top of 18.
It's looking a little cloudy so probably best to take an umbrella out and about with you this morning.
