Emergency crews responded to more than 90 calls for assistance following the surprise storm that lashed the region late on Thursday.

The storm affected most parts of Wagga, but the suburbs of Tolland and Lake Albert were particularly affected.

About 75 per cent of calls were for fallen trees and branches down, according to the State Emergency Service (SES).

SES crews from Temora, Junee and The Rock assisted Wagga volunteers, as well as two Rural Fire Service crews and two Volunteer Rescue Association crews.
