High seas washed out part of the road leading from Ferryland out to the lighthouse, damaging property and the breakwater in the area. This is the same part of the road affected in previous incidents in 2004 and 2009. Armour stone had been put in place following the 2009 incident but proved ineffective in preventing waves washing material onto the road and causing damage. Further protection was proposed at an estimated cost of $1 million
