GALLERY: Storm causes damage along the waterfront in Greater Victoria

High winds and waves caused damage to municipal infrastructure along Sidney’s waterfront on Sunday.

Photos sent to the News Review from reader Nancy Schembri show brickwork torn up and a planter moved, presumably due to the heavy wave action along the waterfront. She also sent in video of the waves building up steam.

Waves, whipped up by high winds and tides, typically pour over the town’s seawall, into Tulista Park — which was closed off Monday morning while municipal workers cleaned up logs, rocks and other detritus from the area. Sidewalks to and from the park area were closed off for additional clean up activity.
