A TEAM of Bathurst SES volunteers have been sent to Parkes to help with an inundation of flood and storm damage.

SES Bathurst Unit’s Joel Ogston said there have been 45 calls for help in the past 24 hours after wild weather lashed Parkes.

Crews will remain in Parkes to help residents impacted by storms until Wednesday or Thursday afternoon.
