Trees, trampolines and the train station sign all fell victim to Storm Eunice, as Reigate faced the tempest on Friday.
The town perhaps fared better than feared in what had been predicted to be the worst storm in three decades, and with less damage reported than in the great storm of 1987.
Local weather watcher Simon Collins clocked one effort from Eunice as reaching 57mph, a ten year high for the town, although somewhat below the 78mph recorded at Charlwood during the afternoon.
Throughout the day county council teams and others cleared roads: residents who posted pictures of downed trees on social media generally reported that clear-up was soon under way.
Saturday has turned out wet and windy (though less intense). The latest weather warnings can be found on the BBC weather page for Reigate.
Fallen trees in roads can be reported to Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1003, but for non-emergency issues residents are asked to use these options.
Damaged or fallen trees within Reigate & Banstead’s parks and open spaces can be reported to the borough council online.
