Bad weather leaves one fisherman counting losses

Traffic was free-flowing on Harbour Drive Friday (16 November) after it was reopened following police road closures.

On Thursday (15 November) night the RCIPS cordoned off the roadway as excessive waves flooded onto the streets, the rough seas left one fisherman counting his losses.

Fisherman Robert Prendergast said he was caught off guard by overnight weather which brought rough seas into central George Town.

“The weather came down yesterday a little early, but we didn’t know it would get so bad and it’s causing some havoc out here on the beach because I lost my two tents, my table, everything is gone,” said Mr. Prendergast.

Mr. Prendergast said now he’s going to have to buy back everything claimed by the waves.

“Well we have to provide for ourselves, it’s going to cost some money like around $1000 to get back our tents of stuff,” said Mr. Prendergast.

He said he is hoping the weather eases up so that he can get back out on the water.

“We hope the sea gets better so we can carry on with our business but for now its rough seas, business will be rolling again soon,” said Mr. Prendergast.
