Four homes were evacuated after the coastal community of Torcross in south Devon was hit by stones thrown over the sea defences by the storm.
The nearby road at Slapton, which connects villages along the coastline, was covered in sand.
Carpenters, masons and labourers from South Hams District Council helped to make homes watertight.
Engineers are also trying to assess whether the road has been damaged.
