David Cameron has called a meeting of the government's emergency committee, Cobra, as high winds hit the UK and flooding is predicted for eastern England later.
I've asked Environment Secretary Owen Paterson to chair a COBRA this morning on the storm disruption - ensuring everything is being done.
Some parts of the UK are have seen the worst storm surge in 60 years, but we are not out of the danger yet.
A combination of factors are combining to make this storm surge particularly powerful.
Water levels around the UK could be higher than in the storm surge of 1953, but thanks to flood defences the impact is likely to be smaller.
