Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think anybody has ever come up with a correct word for what hit S england in 1987. But we refer to it as "the hurricane" cos no other word in common usage really gets the emotional impact.

It was a very destructive high wind born of unusual atmospherics.
