The Illawarra was one of the worst hit regions across the state when wild winds lashed suburbs and fueled fires over the weekend.
State Emergency Service workers were kept busy by removing fallen trees, branches and broken fences. They also helped secure roofs.

NSW Fire and Rescue crews were called to two major jobs on Sunday afternoon.
Firefighters extinguished a grass fire along the railway line at Corrimal, near the cokeworks site after a blaze spread about 100 metres.
The wind caused a smoky haze and dramatic scenes.

A SES spokeswoman said the Illawarra and Blue Mountains had the most calls outs of the 519 jobs across the state.
Nowra units had 34 and Moss Vale had 20.
