State Emergency Service (SES) units across the Mid Coast were kept busy over the weekend as heavy rain hammered the region.
SES Mid North Coast cluster commander, Glenn Laycock, said local units responded to 24 incidents, mostly relating to leaking roofs.
"There was one flood rescue in amongst it down in the Myall Lakes area," Mr Laycock said.
"It was a good outcome."
Forster Pacific Palms SES unit commander, Greg Dodd, said the rain was heavier than expected around the Great Lakes.
"It rained pretty hard early Sunday morning," he said.
"We had some roof jobs - five roof jobs and a couple of fallen trees."
Bungwahl copped the heaviest rainfall across the region, recording 80mm in the 24 hours between 9am Sunday and 9am Monday.
Pacific Palms and Bulahdelah also saw significant downpours, recording 64mm and 55mm respectively.
Elsewhere, Wootton, Tuncurry, Forster and Taree all recorded in excess of 40mm, while Nabiac and Willina received more than 30mm.
Newcastle saw significant flooding on Sunday, with 10 people having to be rescued from a bus that became trapped in floodwaters.
The weekend rainfall was the second major weather event to hit the region during July, with strong winds and damaging surf battering the coast earlier this month.
While that system caused less damage to homes and property than expected - with the SES only having to respond to around 10 incidents across the Mid Coast - it led to significant erosion at Hawks Nest's Jimmys Beach.
More than six metres of foreshore was ripped from the erosion hot spot during the large seas, bringing the water ever closer to the road adjacent to the beach, The Boulevarde, and the homes on the other side of it.
Waves in excess of nine metres were recorded off the coast at the height of the swell.
In the wake of the damage, MidCoast Council has issued a statement saying it's keeping a close eye on conditions at Jimmys Beach this week, with further erosion a possibility.
"Wind and swell direction resulting from the current east coast low weather event could result in further erosion at Jimmys Beach," council's coastal management coordinator Andrew Staniland said.
"Although sand has been moved onto the most critical part of the beach since last week's storm, there has not been enough time between events to restore the full sand buffer.
"Building a sand buffer on the beach during a severe weather event is impossible and pointless."
