Strong winds brought down a large tree at Dubbo on Friday as a storm swept through the region, prompting a renewed call to be ready for wild weather.
The city's NSW State Emergency Service (SES) unit received 14 requests for assistance in about four hours.
One was to a Tamworth Street property, where a large tree had fallen on to a neighbour's fence, NSW SES western zone media officer David Rankine said.
As the Bureau of Meteorology recorded wind gusts as high as 82 km/h at its Dubbo airport station on Friday afternoon, SES crews braced for the worst, but the region to the south-east copped the brunt of the damage.
Mr Rankine said at Orange there were 77 call-outs on Friday and Saturday morning.
"[At Dubbo there were] issues with water coming through roofs, there were a couple of trees down, but mostly it was roof-related activity due to the wind," he said.
Crews were at the Tamworth Street property for an hour, he said.
The Dubbo volunteers received praise for their efforts.
"The Dubbo City unit did a great job in mustering enough troops to address all of those 14 requests for assistance in a four-hour period," Mr Rankine said.
By Sunday the SES was not expecting any more storm activity in the Dubbo region for the next few days, but Mr Rankine urged the community to be prepared.
"The one thing we have found with roofs coming off, sometimes they're freak windstorms and they're difficult to plan for..." he said.
"But what we continue to ask people when weather like this is coming, is to tie down any loose items in their yard... and more importantly, keep an eye on overhanging branches and trees around properties."
He said there were "great opportunities" in between storm events for residents to get any overhanging branches trimmed away, and if there were any trees they were not sure about, to get an arborist to inspect them and make sure they were removed before the next storm.
