Today the Wreckhouse winds peaked at 114 KPH and as expected someone tried their luck once again. Same story and almost the same photos. A few decided to hold up and wait for the winds to calm and around 6:30 PM Traffic was flowing through. Still no Signage there!

The Photos are all starting to look alike to me and
I suspect the Stories are also the same.

Several Tractors with escorts pass through when the winds calmed out with sections of a new Home.They stayed at the Cape Ray turnoff all day until it was clear.

Familiar sites from days gone by. I used to work at CFGN in Port Aux Basque, and I will never forget the first time I saw the damage those winds can do.

wow....this blows me away. Just wondering though, how does the average person who will just be driving through, find out ahead of time if there are high winds or not? We will be passing through this area and it would be nice to know ahead of time (rather than waiting until we are driving through them), if the winds are high

CFCB Radio gives out Wreckhouse wind warnings. If you take your time in a car even wind gusts of 100 kph plus will not blow you over.When entering the area,(codroy valley to Cape Ray) not St. Georges as the dis-information usually spurted out by radio stations and feel uncomfortable,pull over in a sheltered area and wait. It's usually the tractor trailers and vehicles hauling camper trailers that experience problems.
