Wild winds across the region and snowfall on the Barrington Tops kept emergency response personnel busy over the weekend.
According to a spokesperson from the Bureau of Meteorology, a maximum wind speed of 78km/h was recorded at Taree Airport on Friday, August 9, making it the strongest recorded in the area since 2012.
Forster Pacific Palms SES unit commander Greg Dodd said despite the forecasts, the damage around the region wasn't as bad as he expected.
"I thought we'd have a massive weekend," he said.
"It just came in little bursts, with a couple of bigger ones."
SES personnel from the Forster Pacific Palms and Taree units attended to a total of 14 incidents over the three days, reaching from Coomba Park to Taree.
A shed on Warwiba Road, Old Bar sustained the most damage, with much of the tin sheeting that covered the back of the structure coming off in the wind.
A window was also blown out of a house in Forster as the wind came through the back door and forced the glass pane from its frame.
A number of roofs needed to be secured and there were also plenty of fallen trees and branches to clear away.

Mr Dodd said overall it was a great outcome that no one was hurt, but he also took the opportunity to remind the public of some key advice when dealing with strong winds.
"Make sure your things are tied down; if you don't have to go out then don't go out; and stay away from trees," he said.
He also urged people to tie down their trampolines, as they could easily become airborne in strong winds.
A number of roads around the Barrington Tops also had to be closed over the weekend, as icy conditions made it too dangerous to drive.
With light snow falling on the tops from Friday, visitors flocked to the popular tourist destination, but by Sunday police were turning back vehicles coming from Gloucester and Scone.
Barrington Tops Forest Road also had to be closed.
The severe weather warnings that were in place for the Mid North Coast were cancelled yesterday, with wind speeds meant to drop considerably by tomorrow.
A hazardous surf warning remains in place.
