Berkeley Vale has been named in the top 10 regional NSW towns affected by storm damage.
It comes as new NRMA stats show the Central Coast also accounted for 8 per cent of all insurance claims dealing with the fallout of severe weather events over the year to June.
The insurer’s Ramana James says two thirds of us aren't ready to deal with the storm season and many underestimate the wrath of Mother Nature.
“Little acts like trimming branches, clearing your gutters and securing loose items in your garden or on the balcony make a big difference when severe weather strikes,” he said.
