Coffee and cakes baked with love, as Armidale community recovers after tornado

23:56 EDT

Northern Tableland locals have filled the hearts and bellies of work crews and residents affected by a tornado that swept through Armidale.  Thursday evening's tornado was one of several weather fronts that travelled across the state, bringing with them severe winds, rain and hail.  The area went more than 24 hours without electricity or treated water before power was returned to the community at about 10.30pm on Friday.
