Well, there was part of a tree in my garden, rail services were delayed, the A30 was blocked in at least a couple of places yesterday evening, it was the biggest sea of the year at Sevenstones, the strongest gusts at my site since 2016, roads were closed in Bude due to damage to buildings, all train services to Looe were cancelled (trees down), 100s of homes without in west Cornwall yesterday evening, almost the strongest gust on record at nearby Bosullow, some of the squalls included hail & lightning, lorries blown over blocking the road on Bodmin Moor, a Sainsbury's roof blown off, etc. etc. . . . I don't know what more you want!
I think a yellow warning was more than justified, many places in the far SW saw the strongest gusts of this Autumn / Winter. If this wasn't of note, than nothing else has been in recent months.
Plymouth is some way away and not exposed to a NW gale, therefore you missed out. In the same way as a storm creating significant issues in Dawlish, can go relatively unnoticed in Newquay.
Take it from me, I'm a bit of a storm chaser, (photos on request!) and this was a good one. Shame it was dark during this one.
