Out of town SES crews assist with massive storm clean up
A WIDESPREAD clean-up is under way in the region to pick up the pieces after the east coast low.
SES crews from Taree and Harrington are assisting local SES at jobs across the region.
Coffs Harbour SES unit controller Bill Roffey said four houses had been damaged by falling trees overnight.
Mr Roffey said he was frustrated by drivers who drove through floodwaters.
The SES rescued one motorist from floodwaters under the Coffs bridge on Ocean Parade.
However, Mr Roffey said overall, drivers were avoiding the dangerous drive through floodwaters in comparison to the June 4 east coast low.
"I think they were a little more cautious this time, people were heeding warnings," Mr Roffey said.
Mr Roffey said the clean-up should be completed by the end of the day.
