High winds and waves caused damage and flooding in the community of Ferryland, Avalon Peninsula. The damage occurred on the night of February 20-21st, when waves washed away the breakwater protecting the road that runs out to Ferryland Lighthouse, the archaeological excavation and the "Pool" where many boats anchor. The road was damaged, requiring temporary re-routing until repairs could be made.
