Wild winds in Victoria on Wednesday are already creating trouble with the races with the Stony Creek meeting abandoned.

Riders at Stony Creek went to the barriers for the first race but returned soon after as they did not feel safe in the strong and gusty winds sweeping through the region.

The broadcaster's cameraman could not hold the camera straight, giving viewers an insight into the potentially dangerous conditions.

Soon after, stewards made the decision to abandon the meeting with parts of the running rail being blown down and no respite to the high winds expected later on Wednesday afternoon.

Winds of up to 100km/hr are causing chaos across Victoria, causing damage to properties and knocking out power to more than 40,000 homes.
