St Albans was spared the worst of the wicked winds whipping across the country this week.
Other than a couple of felled trees, there was little disruption on the roads around St Albans, Harpenden, Radlett, Wheathampstead and Redbourn.
The rest of the county was not so lucky, with Herts Highways saying: “Up until 12pm we have received 162 reports of fallen trees and branches, 102 of these requiring an emergency response.
“[Council contractor] Ringway has responded by pulling additional crews off planned work to deal with the volumes received.”
In Welwyn Garden City a large tree fell across the road, blocking traffic.
