Truly shocking height of the storm surge - it was well above the shoreline level. A caravan site on the shore was wrecked, with debris all over the place and a tide line halfway up the caravans. The village of Kilnsea had also been seriously affected - with several houses flooded. For anyone who stayed behind rather than evacuating it must have been pretty terrifying.
The road to what was Spurn Point has gone completely at the narrows near the north end of the spit. It was closed during October after a previous storm but if anything was left then, it isn't now. The title is only a half-truth - I think the current land level is probably about the high tide line, so at some point during the month it will be cut off. How this will be fixed, I'm not sure - there is a permanent settlement at the end of the spit for the lifeboat crews and the Humber pilots. For the foreseeable future it will only be accessible to visitors on foot.
A few from near the caravan site - there were people clearing up/inspecting the damage and I didn't think it appropriate to take lots of pictures:
The missing stretch of road:
Damage elsewhere, including a hide washed off the top of a sand dune:
The "overflow" car park, now with added cobbles from the beach (this was grass previously)
