The State Emergency Service (SES) attended to multiple requests for help in the Manning and Great Lakes following a wild storm on Monday, November 6.

Crews attended to 28 properties in Taree, one in Wingham, seven in Nabiac and eleven in the Forster/Pacific Palms area where strong winds caused roof and carport damage.

They will return to six of these today.

Along the Lakes Way near Rainbow Flat, a tree fell across the road during the storm. 

It blocked traffic in both directions when it came down near Spicers Road at around 4.30pm.

The Krambach Hall was also damaged in the storm, with a large section of the roof destroyed.

With a severe hail storm last week prompting over 60 calls for assistance, community engagement coordinator for the NSW SES Mid North Coast region Steve Lawrence said crews have worked tirelessly to help the community.
