Strong winds throughout the area caused a number of trees to fall, blocking roads around the district.
Linton was worst hit, with two separate call-outs throughout the afternoon to remove trees which had fallen.

Ballarat police are urging business owners and retail staff to be wary of counterfeit notes circulating through the area, after a number of fake $50 notes were handed to police.
Police say the notes were passed at a local service station earlier this month and investigators are of the belief that further attempts may be made to use similar notes the future.
Unlike the genuine polymer notes, the fakes are known to crumple like paper and all of their serial numbers are identical.
Anyone who believes they are in possession of counterfeit currency, or has had notes passed or attempted to be passed to them is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
There are currently no planned burns for the Grampians region today and no fire incidents to report from overnight.
Ambulance Victoria paramedics treated a man yesterday after he was trapped beneath his vehicle at Glenmore.
The man was trapped for some time before rescue crews could free him. He was later transported to hospital in a stable condition.
