Photos: Waves Crash Over Barrier on Road

September 18, 2010

The photos below were taken this morning [Sept 18], and show waves crashing over the barrier onto to the road in South Shore, Smiths as the massive Hurricane Igor churns in our direction. As of this morning the US National Hurricane Center says Igor is 475 miles away and is carrying maximum sustained winds of 110mph.

The road started to flood yesterday, and sea spray can be felt as you drive across. Government confirmed that portions of the road will be closed to motor traffic from the Brown Darrell Clinic to Watch Hill Road from 10:00am today. Barriers and signage will be erected but area residents will not be impacted by the barriers.
