A severe weather warning for the South West, south coastal communities and Great Southern has been cancelled but emergency services have advised residents to check homes for damage and keep away from flooded areas.

Weather bureau duty forecaster Edward Boyles said rain was expected to ease during the next few hours as the disturbance and cold front moved east.

A DFES spokesman said the SES had received six calls this morning, but there had been no major damage reported.
