Wild weather beaches boats

WILD weekend weather was catastrophic for Tin Can Bay where many boats have been left high and dry due to strong winds and tidal surges.

These may need salvaging by crane or other means, but the owners of these boats could be well out of pocket at the end of it all.

As yet, because of flooding, there has not been any official word of how Tin Can Bay will fare in the very immediate future with regard to necessities of food, garbage collection etc, so the town is now in a wait-and-see situation.

The town itself has probably not suffered as much as other places. Apart from a little structural damage, though, there is much debris from heavy fallen tree branches about the place, adding to the workload for council workers.

Long-time residents of Tin Can Bay are always prepared for this sort of situation at this time of year, but many have said they had never had to deal with such wild weather as we had had recently.
