(Via AAP)

More than 2300 South Australian homes are still without power after winds of more than 100km/h, heavy rain and surging coastal tides lashed the state.

Houses were evacuated and an emergency relief centre opened in Two Wells, north of the city, on Monday while the State Emergency Service responded to nearly 700 calls for help.

Lobethal, in the Adelaide Hills, recorded the highest rainfall of up to 65mm. Up to 30mm fell across Adelaide.

Wind gusts of more than 100km/h hit Murray Bridge while parts of Adelaide recorded 98km/h gusts.

Coastal homes were inundated by surging tides in Adelaide and in Port Pirie, in SA's mid-north.

Jetties across Adelaide, from Port Noarlunga to Largs Bay, are being assessed after being closed for safety reasons.

Rains and winds are forecast to ease throughout Tuesday.
