First up, Porthleven, a favourite with the national press due to the dramatic nature of the storm pictures taken as the waves pound the coast.

This storm seriously damaged the harbour, and sank a number of boats, but this canon braved the worst that the wild waves could throw at it.
No this is not snow, it is sea foam whipped up by the waves and wind at Poldhu.

Here is one from Swanpool, where the beach was washed up and over the road.
While these trees in Falmouth came down in the wild wind.
How about this little fellow, a puffin believed to have washed from the Scilly Isles has been saved by a couple after washing up on Gyllyngvase Beach.
One of the first victims of the high winds, the stand at Treyew Road.
Next, while not in Cornwall, this storm damage to the mainline at Dawlish will have a serious impact on the county.
Here are some shared online. Penzance at the height of the storm.

The Watering Hole has been the focus of attention for many as it faced the storm with a stout heart, and a little divine intervention.

And last as an added extra, who knew that Cornwall Council had an 'underground bunker"
We're planning to scale down resources in Silver Control. A small team will stay & monitor the situation #ccfloods http://t.co/ioU8nVidfB— @CornwallCouncil 05 February 2014
