Wind gusts of up to 100km/hr are threatening homes right across the southern part of the country, after the system made landfall at Perth earlier this week.

The Western Australian capital was battered by heavy winds and raid, with a ceiling coming down on a family overnight, and a power outage at Perth Airport leaving hundreds stranded on the tarmac and in terminals.
