Solar panels ended up on the road and across play equipment at a Thurgoona child care centre last night with wild weather ripping them from the roof.
The Early Years Academy Thurgoona was the worst hit when the storm hit around 2.30am with half of their solar panels flying off the roof.
Director Josie Saggers said they were able to open the centre at 7am as usual.
"We had a call from Essential Energy to say our power had been shut off due to some damage to our solar panels," she said.
"The SES were called and we were able to get some electricians in to isolate our power.
"A risk assessment was done and one part of the centre was shut off just in time for children to arrive.
"It was hard to picture the solar panels out on the road - some ended up in the playground and on the fence."
Albury SES received 10 calls for assistance including an air conditioner which was also ripped from a roof.
But unit commander Ian Leckie said the child care centre was the worst hit.
"The child care centre on Ava Avenue had all its solar panels ripped off the roof," he said.
"We are still getting call outs with trees over drive ways and things like that.
"Calls for assistance started coming in about 2.30am when the heavy downpour started hitting homes."
Commander Leckie said he expects more calls for assistance today and into the weekend.
"I think we will continue to see calls for assistance and will be working throughout the day to get tarps onto roofs and cleaning up what we can.
