Strong winds tore through the state around midnight. A State Emergency Service spokeswoman said 234 calls for help had been received from midday on Saturday.

She said almost 40 people called just after midnight, when wind gusts were peaking across the state.

The spokeswoman said Melbourne’s north-east was the hardest hit.

“The vast majority of calls were about trees down and traffic hazards,” she said. “Many of the areas affected were also hit last weekend, such as Emerald and Healesville.”

On Sunday the state government extended disaster assistance funding to people affected by storms and floods who live in Baw Baw, Cardinia, Casey, Frankston, Hobsons Bay, Hume, Nillumbik, Whitehorse and Wyndham.

It brings the number of local councils affected by natural disasters this month to 48.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Scott Williams said Mount Hotham clocked the highest wind speed – 117km/h at 1.15am.

Melbourne Airport wasn’t too far behind, with wind speeds of 93 km/h recorded just after midnight.

“It seemed to be the windiest point of the night,” he said.Strongest gusts since midnight: 100km/h @ Mt William & Mt Hotham, 93km/h @ Melbourne Airport. Severe Weather Warning https://t.co/AuqopWpnuIpic.twitter南京夜网/LQ7ibQDNeT— BOM Victoria (@BOM_Vic) October 15, 2016

Northerly winds stuck around until early afternoon with rain forecast between 6pm and 9pm.

Despite the wind, Melburnians experienced the hottest October night in four years on Saturday.

Mr Williams said the mercury did not drop below 18.3 degrees.

“It wasn’t exceptionally warm in terms of long-term records, but we haven’t had anything above 14.1 degrees this month.

Sunday was forecast to reach a high of 24 degrees, with northerly winds turning west to north-westerly in the evening.
