Flash flooding leads to bins floating down street as wild weather hits Melbourne

One shopping centre roof collapsed after storms lashed the area.

A short, sharp burst of rain has led to flash flooding in Melbourne, with footage showing the moment a number of bins floated down one inner-east street.

Just past 6pm AEDT, a downpour hit parts of Victoria, following rain earlier in the day.

Footage taken by 6 News showed multiple bins floating down one street, with one resident telling of water levels "higher than ankle-deep."

Trams were affected as the water continued to hit, however, most vehicles seemed to get through without any major issues.

Earlier in the day, a shopping centre roof in Point Cook collapsed after storms lashed the area.

Channel 7 reported that an emergency warning was issued for "Werribee, the area northwest of Werribee and the area south of Werribee," with residents told to stay indoors.
