DESPITE the severe hail storms that buffeted the Clarence Valley yesterday, the region's State Emergency Services experienced a reasonably quiet day.

At 4.30pm the SES had responded to three call-outs in Nymboida, two in Yamba and one in Grafton. Peter Minturn from the SES Clarence/Nambucca regional headquarters described all call-outs as 'minor incidents'. Bureau of Meteorology operational forecaster Tatiana Poliakova said further storms might pass through the area.

"At the moment it looks as though things will clear up around Friday," she said.
