TweetFacebookFOUR children had to be rescued from Fingal Island and two trucks collided on the New England Highway onaday of wild weather acrossthe Hunter.

Newcastle escaped the carnagethat hit Sydney on Wednesday, but the wet and windy conditionsstill caused headaches for emergency services across the region.

The heaviest rainfalls were reserved for the Upper Hunter, where the State Emergency Service responded to a number of calls for fallen trees and minor damage.

Scone received 39 millimetres of rain between 9am and 6pm, whileMilbrodale, near Bulga, got 37 millimetres.

The rainfall wasn’t as heavy closer to Newcastle –eight millimetres fell at Nobbys –but thunderstorms saw about1700 homes losepower in the early afternoon inEast Maitland, Morpeth and Raworth after lightening hit power lines.

Later in the day awatermain break atNords Wharf left residents without running water until about 10pm.

14 millimetres of rain fell in Nelson Bay, enough to putfour children in danger atFingal Island.

The two boys and two girls, aged between about 12-14, had paddled from Fingal Bay to the island on Wednesday morning, but whenthe large storm cell passed overhead they bunkered down.

When they had not returned on time, police were called.

Nelson Bay water police arrived and found the boards on the island before the four children were found safe and well.

Meanwhile the New England Highway was closed in both directions for a number of hours between Singleton and Muswellbrook after two trucks were involved in an accident.
