In England and Scotland, the Met Office national weather agency still had 85 flood warnings in force as torrential rains caused numerous rivers to overflow their banks.
Video shared on Facebook by Paul Pearse showed the moment on Sunday when Storm Ciara'a storm surge sent large waves down a river in Cornwall, England.
The sizable waves in the town of Bude could be seen in the video as spectators watched from the Nanny Moore’s Bridge. Surfers could then be seen riding in the waves as they appeared to slip right under the tight clearances of the bridge.
According to Cornwall Live, river surfing is not uncommon in Cornwall.
One of the most popular spots for river surfing in the U.K. is at the Severn Bore in Gloucester, where water is funneled into a narrow channel as the tide rises, creating large waves, according to the news outlet.
Storm Ciara brought severe winds and heavy rain to large parts of the U.K. on Sunday, downing trees and cutting power to thousands of residents. The U.K.’s Met Office said the strongest wind gust recorded on Sunday was 97 mph at Needles Battery on the Isle of Wight.
Deaths due to the fierce storm were reported in Poland, Sweden, Britain, Slovenia, Germany and the Czech Republic. On Tuesday, Polish officials reported a third storm-related death in the country, saying a relative of two people killed Monday when the roof of the ski rental building collapsed also died.
