RCMP urge public to stay away from beaches and shorelines

Although the worst of the weather has passed through Nova Scotia, the storm left debris, broken trees and downed power lines which can create hazardous driving conditions.

The RCMP encourage the public to keep the roads clear for emergency vehicles and refrain from unnecessary travel. This will allow the clean-up efforts to be completed in a safe and timely fashion.

If you must travel, use increased caution as debris may be blocking some roadways.

Although many people are interested in viewing the large waves that accompany a storm of this magnitude, the RCMP discourage visiting beaches and shorelines and are asking the public to stay well away from the water’s edge and completely off rocks, breakwaters, and piers where waves are breaking.

Storm driven waves and tides can cause unpredictable and deadly conditions as anyone close to the coast could be swept into the ocean.
