Storm Ciara is on the way - but will it match the devastation of these retro South Tyneside 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 South Tyneside storm photos from over the years?
We have 13 photos of people battling against the wind, floodwater running down the streets and firemen mopping out shops.
We have reminders of storms bringing down fencing and causing chaos for drivers.
How many of these scenes do you remember?
