Ulladulla SES was busy Monday night and into Tuesday morning, repairing damage caused by the storm.
Incident Controller Tracy Provest said teams had attended nine incidents since Monday, June 3.
"We didn't send the field team until daylight, but the operational team was active at 3.46am (Tuesday, June 4)," she said.
"We've had trees on roads, an electronic sign at Narrawallee Street came down, we've had a tree on a house, we've had the side of a house ripped off, so a range of different kinds of jobs."
SES volunteers were juggling the incidents with work and family commitments, and by 12 noon on Tuesday had completed five of the nine.
Ms Provest said residents should pack away or tie down garden furniture and trampolines, and, if possible, ensure storm-water drains on private property were clear.
She said anyone in need of assistance should call the SES on 132 500 - and encouraged people to keep an eye on their neighbours.
"We'll get there as soon as we can - we're all volunteers, but that's what you do in a country town, and its a great community to be part of," she said.
"If anyone has neighbours they haven't seen, or are concerned about, it's a good idea to knock on the door," she said.
"Sometimes when the weather is really bad, especially with the elderly, an accident can happen and no one knows about it."
Ms Provest said the water level in Lake Conjola was being monitored, and was a little higher than usual but "well within tolerances".
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Lake Conjola rose from .79m to .86m between Monday, June 3 and Tuesday, June 4.
South Coast MP Shelley Hancock said in Parliament that she is: "Fighting to open Lake Conjola."
"I also announced that the State Government will provide Shoalhaven City Council with $140,000 in grant funding to prepare a permanent coastal management program for Lake Conjola," she said.
