Mostly safe despite heavy rain

THE Coffs Coast seems to have escaped a bullet after heavy rain again fell in the city overnight.

State Emergency Services spokesman Bill Roffey said 95.2mm had been registered in the 24 hour period up until 9am this morning but only two overnight calls for assistance had been received.

"Around 3am we were called to an area behind Park Beach Plaza and another location at Korora where our services were needed," he said.

"Fortunately we were able to sort everything out by 5am.

"Despite the heavy rainfall there was no panic and for that everybody is to be commended."
