The Hunter received a drenching overnight thanks to an east coast low which has now moved further north. 

Over the 24 hours from 9am Friday to 9am this morning Cessnock and Williamtown received around 26mm of rain. 

Nobbys and Lake Macquaire received around 38mm over the same period.  

While Mangrove Mountain copped 63.8mm. 

The SES have received more than 60 calls for assistance between Friday and Saturday - with most of those coming from Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. 

Meantime the SES has issued a warning about flooded roads in the Dungog area after the Williams River valley received a whopping 104mm of rain overnight. 

It's expected to peak at the minor flood level with SES rescue and reconnaissance teams in the area monitoring conditions. 

Drivers are warned not to try and cross roads impacted by flood waters.
