Here's a video from Salcombe and the surrounding bits:

the storm on Vimeo

Casualties so far are the dunes at South Milton beach and the beach road behind it (near Thurlestone), a decent sized hole in the road outside the Tides Reach Hotel at South Sands Salcombe and the fence at the Winking Prawn - other than that we are having rain on a Biblical scale here today as well as it being a bit windy - If you want to see what it's like at the moment here's a webcam on the South Sands Hotel: Live Web Cam of South Sands beach | South Sands Boutique Hotel & Beachside Restaurant, Salcombe, Devon

The good news is that the weekend might be a break in the weather and the Winking Prawn are having their tent put up - weather permitting!

We had a bit of flooding but no more than any other Spring tide with a storm surge and everyone who got wet is used to it.

I wonder how many of the countries we've "donated" to over the years are returning the favour?

Very few I would reckon.
