A photo of the Wreckhouse area I shot from a Fishing Boat,December 23-3009.
The Photos can give the viewer an idea of how the winds sweep down through those Glacial Valleys after passing over the Table Mountains near Cape Ray.

Council wants Wreckhouse forecasts changed
BY BRODIE THOMAS
The Gulf News
The Port aux Basques Town Council is hoping the winds of change will blow through Environment Canada’s forecast structure.
Councillors are questioning Environment Canada’s decision to group Wreckhouse in with the Stephenville-Bay St. George weather forecast.
It results in Wreckhouse wind warnings being read in the same breath as the Stephenville forecast on radio. Warnings also appear with Stephenville’s forecast on the Environment Canada website, rather than with the forecast for Port aux Basques.
Members of council feel the forecast can be misleading for tourists and truckers arriving in the province because they might hear a Wreckhouse wind warning for the Bay St. George area and think they can safely drive through the Codroy Valley.
