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!
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.
