Storm Imogen: Car hits fallen tree in Southampton
A driver crashed into a fallen tree in Southampton and hundreds of homes were left without power as Storm Imogen lashed southern England.
Winds hit 96mph at The Needles off the Isle of Wight after forecasters issued an amber "be prepared" warning.
Power was cut off at up to 200 homes in the Chichester area and about 30 in Bishops Waltham, before being restored.
More than 140 Southampton homes and 114 properties on the Isle of Wight were also affected.
The fallen tree was cleared after blocking Hill Lane in Southampton.
A resident said the tree came down at about 05:45 GMT before it was struck by a motorcyclist and then the car driver.
Emergency services said no-one was seriously injured.
The B3006 Selborne Road at the A3/A339 junction near Liss was closed after a tree hit a power line and Southsea seafront was shut because huge waves were crashing over the seawall.
The high winds also brought a wall down in the car park of Waitrose in Friary Close, Portsmouth.
Ryan Nolan, who lives in a ground floor flat which backs on to the car park, said: "It shook the whole building. It sounded like a sledgehammer had hit the building.
"It literally looks like it just snapped at bottom."
Fire crews in Gosport were called into action to take a trampoline down from the roof of a conservatory.
Ferries and train services across the county have been disrupted.
Hampshire police warned high winds would have an impact on rush hour and urged people to avoid coastal areas.
Travel disruption in Hampshire:
- Ferry services from operators including Hovertravel, Condor and Brittany are disrupted
- South West Trains said speed restrictions on services had been withdrawn and trains were able to run at normal speed
- Southern said it was running a revised service on some parts of the network
