THE State Emergency Service says a severe wind warning for the state will continue today, with fallen trees in the Loddon Mallee region causing traffic hazards overnight.
SES crews attended three call outs for fallen trees in the Loddon Mallee region this morning.
Statewide, the SES received more than 180 requests for assistance since midnight last night.
A damaging wind warning remains in place today as a stronger cold front moves across Victoria early today as an associated deep low pressure system moves across Tasmania.
Damaging winds around 60 to 80 km/h with peak gusts of 100 to 120km/h are forecast for all districts this morning.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
- Move vehicles under cover or away from trees;

- Keep clear of fallen power lines;
- Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water;
