TREES were brought down in a number of locations in Devon during heavy overnight wind and rain.
The Met Office reported winds of up to 70mph.
A road in Manaton is blocked, while the other roads are passable with care, according to the council.
Hugh Griffith, from the county council, said: "The wind is going to be with us for a while but hopefully the rain will ease.
"It looks like showery rain so hopefully we will have a bit of respite."
The region has 13 flood warnings in place and 48 flood alerts, according to the Environment Agency.
