Home And Away is set to turn into a disaster zone, after a storm hits Summer Bay.

Actress Rhiannon Fish, who plays April Scott in the Australian soap, confirmed that the cast and crew had been hard at work to film the natural disaster storyline, expected to air on UK screens later this year.

"I didn't have a big role in the storm sequence, which I was grateful for because it was full-on," she told TV Week.

"The few scenes that I did have, we had a huge wind machine and a rain machine - and it looks amazing. I can't wait for the audience to see it. Filming it, you did feel like you were inside a storm."
