Get ready to re-live the October 1987 great storm
Next week will be the 25th anniversary of the October 16, 1987 great storm which created such havoc in the south and east of England.
The storm in the early hours of that Friday morning saw 18 people lose their lives, 15 million trees felled, tens of thousands of homes left without power for days, ships run aground and travel trouble across the south of England.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the storm we will be re-living that terrifying night and the effects it had on our region throughout next week.
In Monday's Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News we are publishing a special eight-page supplement, packed full of memories and photographs from our readers and our archives.
Here on our websites you will find even more content to re-live the night that few who lived through the battering wind and rain in Norfolk and Suffolk will ever forget.

We will have video, photo galleries, cuttings from our newspapers at the time and much more.
While our coverage of the aftermath of the storm will continue throughout the week in the EDP and Evening News.

Then on Wednesday we will look at how the emergency services and utility providers coped with the chaos, as well as looking at what lessons were learned and how a similar emergency would be dealt with today.
While throughout the rest of the week we will look at how the storm effected Norwich and north Norfolk, as well as publish many more memories and photos that have been sent to us.
