Storm Eleanor battered much of France on Wednesday morning leaving behind a trail of destruction as well as some impressive images.

Scaffolding is blown over in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, but thankfully no one was injured.

The winds also blew down part of the roof of a church in the town of Marchiennes, in the Nord department.

Alsace was also hard hit by the storm.

There was of course some huge waves crashing into the northern coast of France.

These shots were taken at Auderville in Normandy.


This was the scene in Granville, in the department of La Manche.

Here the Huffington Post has put together a video of some of the damage caused by Eleanor across France.
