Stay Away From The Beach

Access to Saints Rest and McLarens beaches is being restricted until the winds diminish. Sand Cove Road has been closed at the beach and there is no access to the Irving Nature Park. The end of Sea Street is also barricaded to prevent people from getting to the beach there.

The Fire Department is concerned people are ignoring the warnings about the dangers of the high surf and someone could be washed away. For the protection of everyone, the beach is closed until further notice.

Barricades are in place and Police will be around until the beach is reopened. A crew from the Fire Department also remains on standby at Saints Rest Beach.

We're told by the city Red Head Road is closed at the dyke while crews take away the debris which piled up from the high winds overnight and this morning.
