A Victorian man has been killed and a five-year-old boy is fighting for life after separate incidents where trees were toppled over during wild weather in Melbourne overnight.

A four-year-old was struck by a tree while reportedly walking with his father on Thursday night in the southeast of the city.

Falling trees killed a four-year-old child, a 36-year-old woman and a 59-year-old man. Residents of nearly 90 cities were left without electricity.

A man has died after a tree fell on his vehicle in Belgrave after a heavy storm rolled through. The driver of the auto, a 24-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries.

High winds sent trees crashing into homes and crushing cars near Melbourne, state premier Daniel Andrews said Friday.

The latest figures come after storms swept through Victoria cutting power to tens of thousands of homes.

The power failure caused disruptions at a water purification plant.

On Friday, residents in 88 suburbs were also warned that the storm had contaminated drinking water.

"We know and understand this is unique and we don't want those coronavirus rules to make it any harder, but we just have to find that balance point and I am confident that we can", Andrews said.

The Australia Bureau of Meteorology senior meteorologist, Dean Narromore, told reporters winds of 158 kilometres per hour (98 miles per hour) - equivalent to a Category 2 cyclone - were recorded at Wilsons Promontory, while gusts of 124 km/h (77mph) were recorded at Mount Gellibrand.
