Severe storm in Sydney has claimed life of at least one person and injured another Thursday afternoon.

The man died after his car, travelling on the Great Western Highway, was crushed by a large tree at Emu Plains in the city's west, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported quoting New South Wales Ambulance Inspector Murray Traynor.

A 60-year-old woman driving the car suffered multiple injuries and was airlifted to Westmead hospital in a stable condition.

The fierce winds, rain and hail struck Sydney causing delays and diversions at Sydney Airport.

The State Emergency Service said it had received more than 500 calls for help, while the NSW Fire and Rescue Service have received 1,600.

The worst hit suburbs are Penrith, Mt Druitt, Liverpool and Bankstown.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) had earlier issued a severe weather warning for parts of New South Wales, including Sydney and the Hunter region.
