Weekend of work for fireys and SES
SES VOLUNTEERS and emergency services across the coast were kept busy at the weekend, with more than 15 calls going out from Coffs Harbour to Corindi.
Corindi SES attended to five separate calls from Woolgoolga, Sandy Beach and Safety Beach from Saturday night to late yesterday, all of which were for assistance with flooding.
The Coffs Harbour City SES attended 11 calls for assistance, and was also kept busy in the northern region.
While there were certainly no fires about, the Woolgoolga Fire Brigade did their part when they were called to the same three houses in Mariners Way on Saturday night and then again on Sunday.
The run off from an adjacent building excavation meant the Woolgoolga Fire Brigade and SES had to attend the houses and pump water out of the residences.
Water was over the road at Blackadder Creek and South Grafton.
However, Coffs Harbour City SES local controller Bob White said yesterday afternoon things were looking up.
"At this stage, the rain has let off... , the creeks are dropping, and we're finishing off the last of our 11 calls. Provided the rain eases, it's looking good."
