Pictures show the aftermath of Storm Eunice in St Albans and London Colney.
After winds which reached speeds of more than 60mph in Hertfordshire today (Friday, February 18), blue skies have returned for the evening.
But pictures show that homes and pubs in and around St Albans have been damaged by the bad weather.
At one house in Beningfield Drive, London Colney, a gable wall was destroyed leaving the roof interior exposed.
At the Colney Fox pub, photographer Craig Shepheard witnessed staff grappling with outdoor chairs and tables which were blown away from the front garden.
Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service has said it has worked hard to resolve issues throughout the county.
A fire service spokesperson said: "Our crews have been working hard with partners and neighbours today to respond to hundreds of calls related to Storm Eunice.
