Emergency crews have rescued a woman who became stuck in flood waters at Kambah Pool overnight.

ACT Fire & Rescue, SES and Police crews deployed throw bags and ropes to safely retrieve the woman from the water.

She was assessed at the scene by paramedics but didn’t appear to suffer any major injuries.

A Spokesperson for the Emergency Services agency has reminded Canberrans of the dangers that remain, despite the rain easing overnight.

“Rivers, creeks and storm water drains are currently fast moving and full of debris. They pose a threat to people and vehicles and should be avoided. If it’s flooded, forget it!”

Since the wet weather arrived in the region on Tuesday, the SES has responded to more than 180 calls for assistance.

A number of roads across the region also remain closed on Wednesday, the current list of closures can be found here
