Power cuts have been reported widely across the Surrey and Hampshire border area after Storm Isha passed through on Sunday night.

Electricity outages have been reported in Elstead, Holt Pound and Bucks Horn Oak near Farnham, Upper Froyle, Beech, Shalden and Lasham near Alton, Alresford, and smaller pockets elsewhere – affecting hundreds of homes.

The traffic lights at the A31 Farnham Bypass/Weydon Lane junction were also pitched into darkness late on Sunday after electricity company SSEN reported a power cut in the area.

It comes after Storm Isha arrived in the area on Sunday evening, lashing the region with strong winds and heavy rain into the early hours of Monday morning.

Gusts of 50 to 60mph were recorded locally as the storm reached its height at around 9pm.

Fallen trees blocked some rural roads, including Farnborough Road in Farnham and Holybourne Hill near Alton, and snapped branches and debris are widespread.

A tree also fell on a house in Four Marks, leaving Hattingley Road impassable.

Litter has also been strewn across many housing estates, after the storm coincided with bin day for many areas.

There have been many reports of good samaritans clearing trees, debris and litter across the area.

There are currently flood alerts for excess groundwater in the Alton and Farringdon areas, and in the Meon Valley.

And untreated sewage is currently being released into the Oakhanger Stream, following releases into the River Wey at Alton, Bentley and Haslemere in recent days. See the Rivers Trust's near-real time map of sewage releases here.
