Homes are without power and trees have fallen across the area as a result of Storm Doris.
Trees have fallen on Common Lane in Beccles, Vicarage Lane in Mettingham and on the A144 near Ilketshall St Lawrence.
In Earsham, John Place an employee of TP Fire and Security, was carrying out a fire alarm and emergency lighting service for one of their clients when a tree fell onto his van.
A statement from the companys said: “We’re devestated that the van had only been on the road for four days before it was struck by a tree courtesy of Storm Dorris.”
There have also been reported powercuts across Beccles and Bungay, though UK Power Networks could not confirm the exact number of homes affected.
