Singleton residents have commenced a neighbourhood clean up after a severe thunderstorm wreaked havoc early Friday evening.
Last night SES Unit Commander for Singleton Tim Merrick confirmed his building received 15 callouts by 10pm following the storm which took place from 7:40pm (see video).
NSW Fire and Rescue, Ambulance and Police assisted the 16 combined SES members from Singleton and Maitland who have been on call throughout the night.
“One of the reports from Queen Street was a person trapped in a vehicle,” Mr Merrick told The Hunter River Times.
“Thankfully, that was just a branch which was easily removed.”
