By 2pm, SES volunteers has been called to 120 jobs mainly around the northern beaches and spokesman Todd Burns predicted that number would rise to 300 by the end of the day.

"This storm has hit Sydney so quickly, all our volunteers have just had to scramble together to get each job covered as quickly as possible," he said.

One of biggest jobs is a tree which came down on a parked car on Mona Vale Road.
