The clean-up is starting after another night of storms in Cornwall.
Around 2500 homes had no power on Saturday morning after 80 mile an hour gales sliced through cables.
Western Power says teams are working to get them reconnected, but they cannot be sure how long that will take.
Up to 20 homes and businesses found themselves underwater because of storm surges in Penzance.
There was also flooding at St Mawes, Looe and Kingsand.
A video of a wall of water hitting the bridge at Newlyn has had more than 70 thousand hits on YouTube.
The institute in Kingsand was damaged after huge waves slammed into windows but the clock tower is still standing.
Local Alan Hudson was evacuated when the last storms hit: "We've seen it all before here but not quite as bad as that and they were coming over the roof and breaking against here when the coastguards evacuated us here; we had to get out the kitchen window."
Duchy fire crews took more than a 120 calls in 24 hours.
A van had to be towed from from rising water at St Neot and a tree crashed onto the roof of a cottage at Perranaworthal but no-one was hurt.
Flood warnings for the north and south Cornwall coasts have been stood down.
Yellow weather alerts are in place for gales and heavy rain which could affect river levels.

Helen Chivers from the Met Office tells the Westcountry Tonight why we are being hit by relentless storms: "They've been brought to us by the jet stream but they actually have their origins the other side of the world in the Indonesian region. There's been a lot of rain there and what it's done is it's set up the global jet stream to blow all of these storms towards us."
The ruined railway line at Dawlish took another battering on Friday night.
Check the latest updates from First Great Western, who say the line between Plymouth and Penzance and all branch lines in Cornwall will be closed until at least lunchtime; inspectors are checking the damage.
Cornwall's rugby matches have fallen victim to the storms.
The Cornish All Blacks home game against London Irish on Saturday has postponed.
Redruth were due to travel to Shelford but that has been called off too.
After a pitch inspection on Saturday morning, the Cornish Pirates' match against London Welsh on Sunday has also been called off.
