And more extreme weather is on the way today as a red wind warning remains in force across the Bailiwick.

The emergency services were called out to 36 incidents yesterday, more than 18 of those saw the Fire & Rescue Service dealing with flooding and structural damage in coastal and low-lying areas.

This included the airport roof.

Gusts peaking at 98kph, around 53 knots, and a 9.7m high tide led to Vazon, Perelle, L’Eree and Route de Pulias being closed for safety and clean-up operations.

The Perelle coast road was littered with stones, seaweed and other debris while gardens and other property were submerged.
