NSW south coast braces for hail, winds

Date

NSW residents are being warned that large hailstones and damaging winds are on the way as severe thunderstorms bear down on the state's south coast.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokesman told AAP it was "not out of the question" that a thunderstorm could also hit the state's north coast, but no warning was in place by mid-afternoon on Sunday.

South coast towns in the warning area include Batemans Bay, Eden, Bega and Moruya Heads.

The State Emergency Service (SES) told residents to take all precautions including moving their cars under cover or away from trees, securing or putting away loose items around the house, and keeping clear of fallen powerlines.

The SES was called to more than 120 clean-up jobs on the NSW north coast on Sunday.

"The majority of jobs relate to roof damage and trees down and have centred around the area of Woodburn, west of Ballina," the SES said in a statement on Sunday.

"Wind gusts of up to 100 kilometres an hour were reported yesterday and one home at Woodburn collapsed as a result of the severe weather."
