Storm Ciara is on the way - but will it match the devastation of these retro Sunderland storms?
Storm Ciara is on the way and weathermen are predicting floods, travel disruption and winds gusting up to 80 miles per hour.
But will it match the havoc wreaked in these Sunderland and East Durham storm photos from over the years?
We have 15 photos of flotsam filling the Marina, a fallen tree blocking a road, and people battling against the wind.
We have reminders of storms causing chaos for drivers, floodwater running down the streets and waves battering the coastline
How many of these scenes do you remember?
