West Norfolk is bracing itself for disruption tonight as a major storm heads towards the borough.
Winds of up 80 miles per hour and heavy rain are expected to reach the area overnight, with the worst of the conditions expected tomorrow morning.
Police have urged drivers to take extra care on the roads, while residents are also being warned to stay away from the sea because of the dangers of large waves crashing over defences.
Rail commuters have also been warned that no trains will run until at least 9am on Monday and that services are likely to be disrupted all day.
First Capital Connect, which operates most passenger services between Lynn, Cambridge and London, said it would be running a revised timetable with fewer trains and extended journey times.
Although the company plans to continue running its services as normal tonight, passengers are being encouraged to travel earlier if they can.
Meanwhile, Greater Anglia, which also runs some services to and from Lynn, has said that passengers with tickets to travel tomorrow can either use them tonight or on Tuesday.
Elsewhere, West Norfolk Council has called for residents to consider not putting their food waste bins out to be collected in the morning.
Officials fear that bins and waste could be blown around in the storm if they are left outside and have asked for householders who would normally have their bins collected tomorrow to put them out next week instead.
However, the crucial Norfolk County Council meeting on the Lynn incinerator project is currently scheduled to go ahead as planned.
A council spokesman said a decision on whether to delay the meeting at County Hall, which is due to start at 10am tomorrow, will not be made until the morning.
