More wild weather to come

Over the last few days, with winds peaking up to 110km/h, many residents of the

South Coast have been left ducking for cover.

Fallen branches, damaged roofs and almost 400 tree related jobs have kept more than 170 volunteers in the field very busy.

NSW Emergency service volunteers from the South Coast and Illawarra have been working

tirelessly side by side with Fire and Rescue NSW and NSW Rural Fire Service attending more than 700

requests for help.

Endeavour Energy teams restored electricity to the thousands of homes which  felt the effects of no power.

With more wild weather predicted by the end of the week, the NSW  SES advises residents to act now by preparing homes to help reduce the potential damage caused by severe winds.

Acting deputy region controller Alex McFadden said taking preventative measures  early, can minimise damage to homes.

“Some of the simple things people can do include storing away loose items, clearing any fallen

branches from backyards and ensuring that trees around the yard are maintained.”
