Awoke today to a trail of damage on my property. Roofing felt torn off both sheds and my extension with green branches ripped off trees and strewn across the bungalow and conservatory. Makeshift repairs will have to be made before the next batch of bad weather comes in tomorrow and at the weekend.
Nearby, Dawlish seafront is a disaster area with parts of the seawall gone and the rail line washed away in sections. The main rail line will be out of action for many weeks.
A neighbour reports a large tree down in his garden and there will be others throughout the combe.
Reports state that a Force 10 storm hit South Devon yesterday and overnight which exceeded the forecast gales.
