Storm Eunice arrives in Cornwall

Friday 18th Feb, with a 6am high tide and howling west-southwesterly gale I headed over to Cornwall's south coast where Storm Eunice was bearing down.

With wind speeds gusting to 80 or 90 mph this was without doubt the biggest storm to hit Cornwall since 2014. Although the headline numbers didn't seem incredibly high the conditions on the ground were fairly brutal. Driving around I can't remember having so many bits of tree in the road, including one right across the main road through Marazion.

The first spot I headed to was Porthleven which is always good for a high tide spectacle. After this things became even wilder as I carried on up the Lizard to Mullion Cove and then Kynance Cove. The conditions were atrocious and I really didn't have the kit to stop being blown around and get soaked. However, I did manage to get some footage that hopefully conveys the power of this storm.
