More than 16,000 homes and businesses remain without power as the clean-up continues from deadly storms that pummelled parts of NSW.
Storms battered parts of Sydney, felling power lines and trees including one that hit a car, killing a man.
The Central Coast also received a battering.
SES volunteers have been joined by police and fire crews on Friday at the worst-hit suburbs, including Penrith, Mt Druitt and Blacktown in the west and Bankstown and Moorebank in the southwest.
At Emu Plains, one man died on Thursday afternoon when a large tree struck his car, also critically injuring the 60-year-old female driver.
