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 a previous incident in 2004. About 150 m of cribbing was washed away, leaving the area vulnerable to further damage. There had been minor damage in October 2009.
