The storm was the product of a cold front and the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Mangga.

Prepare for an unusually widespread severe weather event along the west coast.

"We will not attempt any fix work during the storm because operating elevated work platforms (cherrypickers) and other equipment is not safe to do so because of the unsafe winds", it said. By Sun night, severe weather will be confined to the SW of WA, easing during Monday.

Jon Broomhall, acting assistant commissioner at the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) said the "once-in-a-decade" storm would bring flooding and risky seas.

"Normally our storms come from the south-west and this will come from the north-west so it will test people's buildings, sheds and all those unsecured items, so we're asking people to secure property and make sure everything loose is tied down".

"We haven't yet requested interstate assistance, we'll wait and see what the impact is, but we have had discussions already with the Australian defence force locally for what they can help us with".

Residents in coastal areas from as far north as Exmouth and south to Augusta are specifically warned of the potential of a risky storm tide.

"We are expecting peak wave heights, particularly on Monday of over eight metres (26 feet).It's unlikely to significantly ease in Perth until Monday afternoon", he told a press briefing.

Western Australia is being battered by unsafe weather, with high winds and heavy rain lashing most of the state in a "rare event" that has damaged homes and businesses and cut power to tens of thousands of properties.
