Some pretty freaky pictures of the damage.

Aww, thanks! We had 100mph winds on the coast here, but fortunately I live in a town centre and we're pretty well hidden. There have been quite a few trees down but we are all ok.
Hope all the other UK peas are too!

I don't know if we have any peas from these areas, but it is not just the UK that has been affected. It has also hit northern France and Germany (I have heard news of 2 deaths in Germany), Belgium and is now headed into Denmark and southern Sweden.
The Oresund Bridge, which connects Copenhagen and Malmo has been closed all day, and the city of Gothenburg issued a 'shut down' order at 4pm (it's now nearly 8pm) - sending everyone home from work. Gothenburg is not very high above sealevel, so there are real concerns re flooding there.

I couldn't see any real damage but some official person went around the neighbourhood to inspect all the old trees and ordered it to be removed immediately. They chopped it down 10 minutes later. I'm kinda more upset about than is socially acceptable, but I guess I'll get used to it! It is better for it to come down than to fall on someone or crash into the building, of course. Just sad when healthy mature trees have to go. I haven't been across the street to the park yet but I fear for how many trees they will have lost, as it is essentially all old growth and quite exposed at the top of a hill.
But we didn't lose power or have any gas leaks. Trains are a nightmare while they clear the trees but that's to be understood I suppose.
Funniest thing was just the 24 hours of nervous talk before it all hit - trains were cancelled today before the storm hit yesterday, people were panic buying at the shops. It was a big storm for here, but if you've lived through a storm pretty much *anywhere* that has actually extreme weather, you would have found this a minor blip. We just don't do extreme weather much here! Meanwhile, the Kansas girl in me may have had thoughts in her head like '100 mph winds? The school bus wouldn't even be late for that!' But obviously very different surroundings and high winds can cause scary stuff!
Hope all our Euro Peas stay safe, warm, and dry!

We are in East Anglia and had about 2 hours of crazy winds but much calmer than I was expecting.
Prayers to those affected.
