Strong winds whipped up a small storm in Cooma last week and over the weekend as trees split and branches were blown to the ground.
While most of us retreated indoors to stay clear of the ferocious winds, Cooma-Monaro Shire Council staff and the SES were kept busy cleaning up the mess.
At the weekend the SES helped with roofs damaged by strong winds. They also dealt with a fallen tree in Orana Avenue, which caused a power black out, and a large branch across Mittagang Road.
In Centennial Park, crews were quick to respond when a Manchurian pear next to bus shelter split on Wednesday.
At Nijong Oval, a large poplar, about 20 metres high, fell to the ground in the strong winds, while a branch blocked the walkway behind the bowling club.
There were also two prunus trees in Waggun Street, a large branch at the Cooma Showground, a branch on the corner of Sharp and Creek Streets, a dead tree at Neewarra Street and half a prunus tree on Mittagang Road staff attended to.
