Coast Guard cutters!

Coast Guard personnel yesterday came to the rescue, making the road free of debris and broken trees in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Tomas.
Tomas, who passed by the island early Saturday morning, left several huge trees uprooted and broken limbs strewn across the country’s roads, causing motorists in some cases to seek alternative routes.
Chief Petty Officer Ryan Selby, who led the team armed with cutlasses and chainsaws, said the group had been on the road since 8:30 a.m., and had started from Esso Black Rock to make their way along Highway 1.
When the DAILY?NATION caught up with them, they were at Sunset Crest removing a large limb that had lodged itself on a power line.
Here, Coast Guard men get down to the task, removing this huge branch from the wire.
