From St James to St Peter, residents stood and gaped as waves pounded the West Coast.
There were dramatic scenes of waves crashing across the road; pounding the Speightstown jetty and leaving its barricades leaning and throwing fist-sized rocks, with explosive force, into the car park of Jordan Supermarket in St James while a man there struggled to remove them before they could damage vehicles.
And fishermen in the close-knit community of Six Mens, St. Peter, were taking no chances. They were removing their boats to further safety.
Meteorologist at the Government Meteorological Service, David Best says the conditions were due to a low pressure system in the North Eastern Atlantic near the South West Azores.
Here, this was the awesome sight thrown this way by Mother Nature. This was the scene behind Jordan’s Supermarket earlier today.
