Commuters underwhelmed by the storm and trying to get into work are facing waiting until 10am for a train.
South West Trains first said there would be no trains until 10am pointing to 29 trees counted so far blocking lines around its network.
It has since revised its bad news to 11am. It said at 8.55am it had cleared 21 of the 33 trees it had found on the tracks.
There are no replacement buses running.
A fallen tree had blocked the road on Manor Drive North both ways between Malden Way and Church Road and The Manor Drive at about 8.30am.
