TUESDAY devastating dawn Stormy winds that swept through the City of Sekondi Takoradi caused damage to properties particularly properties belonging to fishermen at the Sekondi Fishing Harbour.
Scores of canoes numbering about 30 and 10 fishing Boats that had docked at the Sekondi Fishing Harbour were reported to have had their fair share of the havoc wreck by the stormy winds. Canoes particularly were broken and shredded into pieces as a result of the stormy winds that swept through the metropolis. Hitherto when stormy winds were reported to have pale off roofing sheets and destroy plantation, this time round, fishermen at the Sekondi Fishing Harbour had their fair share of the havoc wreck by the stormy winds to the surprise of many. When news first hit the social media about the destruction caused to the canoes and fishing boats, people reluctantly believed it until pictures in the late evening started emerging. The pictures showed that apart from canoes and boats that were destroyed and shredded into pieces, fishing nets and generators also had their fair share of the havoc. But no life was lost as a result of the havoc. One of the fishermen The Western File spoke to expressed shock over the development. According to him, the manner in which his canoe was shredded into pieces underscored the devastating effect of the stormy winds. *I was not at Sea when the stormy winds started but later when I went to check on my canoe and realized it had been shredded into pieces my conclusion was that the storm was devastating*. The stormy winds started on Tuesday dawn and swept through the City of Sekondi Takoradi pulling down food crops and plantations in addition. PIC-Some of the shredded canoes
