From Wikipedia: "The Great Storm of 1987 occurred on the night of 15–16 October 1987, when an unusually strong weather system caused winds to hit much of southern England and northern France. It was the worst storm to hit England since the Great Storm of 1703[2] (284 years earlier) and was responsible for the deaths of at least 22 people in England and France combined (18 in England, at least four in France).[3]

According to the Beaufort scale of wind intensities, this storm had winds of hurricane force; however, the term hurricane refers to tropical cyclones originating in the North Atlantic or North Pacific. Hurricanes have a very different wind profile and distribution to storms, and significantly higher precipitation levels."

I was working in Portsmouth at the time - we were woken around 2am when the wind blew down the brick wall next door. Although pretty well all other schools in the city closed for the day, our deputy head - who was a stupid tw*t - called us in. As we drove to school, the wind funneling up the terraces was ripping bricks out of the end terrace houses, so that we could see into the attics (pretty much all the walls of some attic spaces had been ripped away). We saw several cars crushed under fallen walls and chimneys. The sea front was completely flooded. When we arrived in school, predictably only around 6 kids had turned up (parents being a lot more intelligent than the deputy), so after half an hour we got sent home again!
