Severe storms on the 14th & 15th February 2014 further damaged the Kingsand clock tower and Rame Institute building. Huge stormwaves again breached the sea facing Institute wall and severely eroded the internal west wall of the building leaving the clocktower and indeed the whole building in a most precarious state. The interior of the institute became fully exposed and was severely battered by the large storm waves. It was evident that the clock tower was extremely close to being lost. Measurements indicated that the top of the tower moved some 15mm.
