SES volunteers worked until midnight on Friday cleaning up after damaging winds and heavy rain lashed the city.
The Bureau of Meteorology recorded 21 millimetres of rain in the 24 hours to 9am on Saturday, with 14 millimetres of that falling between 3.30 and 4pm on Friday.
The storm took Orange’s November rainfall total to 133 millimetres - nearly twice the monthly average.
Local SES controller Kim Stevens said volunteers responded to 31 calls for assistance during the weekend as a result of the storm.
Buildings escaped significant structural damage, with fallen trees on roads and power lines the main reason for calls to the SES.
About 28 SES volunteers were assisted by 14 Rural Fire Service volunteers on Friday afternoon and evening.
“There was a significant number of very large trees uprooted. Some water came into a couple of places where the roof had been damaged. The rest of the problems were basically fallen trees and limbs out of trees,” Mr Stevens said.
The clean-up continued Saturday and yesterday.
Golden West Race Club operations manager Michael Plummer said damage at Towac Park during a race meeting on Friday afternoon was “mostly cosmetic”.
“Most of it we can do by repairs but we’ve had a bit of water damage in the roof. The biggest loss is the income we would have lost with those five races. That’s about $30,000 in income,” he said.
Mr Stevens said it was not the worst storm event Orange had seen and reminded residents to call the SES on 132-500 if they had any problems during storm season.
“It would probably rate for Orange as a medium event. My recollection from the early 90s is that we had one operation that had 145 jobs,” he said.
Fine and sunny weather is forecast for the next three days.
