Beach erosion in Shelburne County after Lee

By Kevin Northup Sep 18, 2023 | 11:49 AM

Coastal areas of Shelburne County experienced some flooding during Lee.

The highest wind gust in Sandy Point on Saturday was 86 kilometres an hour, according to Environment Canada.

A few places in Lockeport were also flooded.

In Barrington/Cape Sable Island, EMO coordinator Dwayne Hunt says beach erosion was an issue.

“The Hawk, South Side, Stoney Island, the Causeway areas were impacted by the waves, and a lot of sand shifted around. As far as flooding or damage, it was no worse than a typical storm here,” said Hunt.

He says there were power outages through the area, but they were restored yesterday.

A few branches also fell.
