MAITLAND'S State Emergency Service crews have had a busy weekend, responding to more than 30 call-outs.
Maitland SES Unit community engagement officer Alex Varley said the calls had been consistent throughout the weekend from the wet and wild weather.
"Mostly it's been leaking roofs with the heavy downpours but we also have had some trees come down," Ms Varley said.
"We had strong winds come through in the early hours of the morning [on Sunday] so we've had some trees down.
"It's been a mix bag and we are still getting calls coming through."
There are also sandbags available for collection at the Maitland City Unit - 20 Waterworks Rd, Rutherford.
Volunteers are onsite to assist with loading sandbags into vehicles and advice on how to protect your property from flash flooding.
Over the weekend, Maitland copped nearly 50mm, combined, on Friday and Saturday while more than 60mm fell on Sunday.
