Post Fiona damage in the St. Peter's Area

Some pics of photos we took the day(s) after Hurricane Fiona in September 2022

Washed out Confederation Trail directly in front of the Inn.

In the weeks following, it was re-built and the Trail cleared of downed trees.

The area at the end of the Bay was flooded but the waters receeded within 24 hours, leaving behind much seaweed, rocks, driftwood, tree trunks, and even fishing equipment.

The St. Peter's Community rallied together, with the Firehall open daily for food, coffee, warmth and company. The Community Hall prepared evening meals for residents who were without power.

Many roads were impassable. This is us driving towards Goose River, the left tire rack you see is the right hand edge of road, the right wheel track is in the ditch - trees covered the roads. We went to assist friends whose laneway was completely tree covered - much like this photo, and no one wants to be like that for long in case of an emergency!

Shorelines are not the same......

This will be a familiar site for some time. It is estimated that 40% of the Island's trees were destroyed by Hurricane Fiona
