Storm Ciara goes viral: the best social media posts over the weekend

February 10, 2020 by Emily Mertens

Storm Ciara caused havoc over the weekend resulting in road closures, roof collapses and traffic mayhem.

Southend-on-Sea felt the full force of the storm, so here are the best social media posts showcasing the disruption.



The storm began early in the day, causing a tree to blow over on Cambridge Road, as well as on the A127 near to the Tesco roundabout.


Unsurprisingly, the coast made some unmissable waves during the storm!



Station Road was shut due to the roof of the Cliffs Pavilion becoming increasingly unstable. The theatre has now reopened.



The Royals Shopping Centre was also closed during Sunday afternoon.



Southend seafront was also featured in this Guardian video showcasing the storm's most violent disruptions.


Despite the winds dying down, Storm Ciara is still affecting Southend with the Pier and cliff lift being shut until further notice.



Chalkwell and Southend seafront are also currently experiencing flooding due to the high tide and wind!
