Dorian storm damage

It’s been a week since Dorian blew over PEI, and power has now been restored to most of the island. During my travels this week I’ve seen countless trees down or leaning on power lines, and also some structural damage to buildings. Many provincial parks have substantial damage, and every bit of coast I’ve visited has taken a beating, in some cases losing up to 10 feet of cliffside.

My mom is visiting at the moment, having planned her vacation long before hurricane season. We are staying in Prince County for 2.5 weeks, and West Point is one of the first places we visited after the storm:

The damage is obvious, there used to be dunes and a boardwalk here. After they were washed away during a previous storm, a temporary new dune area and a barricade were put in place, but all that has washed away now too.

Tomorrow my sister will be joining us for the remainder of the vacation, let’s hope we get some sunshine so I can show you more colourful pictures in my next update! 🙂
