Emergency services spent Australia Day dealing with the aftermath of a severe thunderstorm that struck Canberra on Monday night.
Two Tuggeranong women were hospitalised during the storm that battered Canberra and the ACT State Emergency Service received nearly 550 calls for help during the evening in the capital.
SES volunteers from the Southern Highland were called in to assist local SES crews, with ACT firefighters and TAMS crews also lending a hand with the clean up.
The storm brought flash flooding and hail stones the size of golf balls, and the Bureau of Meteorology said Canberra could see isolated storms and heavy rainfall on Tuesday evening.
