Looks like Holyhead Marina has taken a real hit from the storms, with up to 80 boats sunk or destroyed  :((

Looks nasty. Got to feel for the owners of those boats.

A lot of damage on that coast , seen photos of North Cornwall / Devon where boats up to 27ft ( at least 4 tonnes dead weight ) moved 150 yards up from a beach and then washed over a 4ft high wall onto a road , a lot of damage and the worst is yet to hit with this bad storm in the Atlantic , fishing boats in the Northern North sea are suffering from icing up ( light icing so far but the fishing industry know just how dangerous that is with all the losses up at Iceland and Norway with ice over the decades including 3 trawlers in 2 weeks with only 1 survivor at Iceland )

All I can say is that if you don't have to travel then don't , I had to get help digging out my path from my door to my car this morning , only just managed to go the mile from the house to Asda's only to find they hadn't had any deliveries for 2 days and unlikely to get tomorrow so no loaf and I got the last bottle of milk , roads not been gritted for more than a week so its been hellish up here and the wind is rising again so there's going to be more damage up here tonight , fingers crossed its only boats that get damaged and no one looses their life , boats/cars/lorries can all be replaced a life cannot

The freezing rain has been so heavy as it froze on the overhead cables that it brought down the power lines supplying our village and also cutting our community wind turbine off.

Holyhead Lifeboat was moved to the inner harbour where the old stena line hss used to berth,   they had to use the ILB D Class Lifeboat just get the crew on to the seven class,   visit the marina many times in support of Holyhead Lifeboat just devastating seeing the photos and  and videos amd hope the community and rebuild the harbour and try get back to normal as soon as they can but has a lot things its easy said then done,  it going to take time
