Marina on Virginia’s Middle Peninsula has lost part of the roof over its pier, damaging several boats. It is thought that wind was the main cause.
Overnight Saturday, into Sunday. National Weather Service Wakefield VA, issued an emergency weather announcement for the area of Gloucester to Hartfield Virginia, until 3 a.m. The National Weather Service Wakefield, VA issued a special weather statement for the area from Gloucester to Hartfield, Virginia until 3 a.m. It warned people of winds up 40 miles per hours and advised them to “seek cover in a durable structure”.
Regatta Point Yachting Center is located on Broad Creek. At the Regatta Point Yachting Center a part of pier’s roof blew away and ended up on top another pier. Deltaville’s and Hartfield’s fire departments found two collapsed piers.
Deltaville Fire Department called the incident an apparent wind event and said that boat owners on both piers were in their vessels.
According to the Fire Department, a boater had to be rescued from his boat using a small inflatable craft. The firefighters report that there were no injuries. Damage was only limited to the two docks.
Salvage and repairs are expected to take longer than a week. They will also block a portion of Broad Creek channel, says the Coast Guard. U.S. Coast Guard Mid-Atlantic says in an advisor to mariners “Salvage-and-cleanup are underway. A crane and deck-barge is nearby. This limits the red-side of the channel near Broad Creek marker #10 up to 15-foot width.”
Estimated completion date is Sept. 19. While the Coast Guard is coordinating passage, it says that boaters may contact the salvage supervisor at “SEAWARD 17,” using VHF radio. The agency urges boaters in the affected area to travel with extreme caution.
Deltaville Fire Department wrote on its Facebook page that everyone was safely evacuated from the accident scene. “Strong efforts by responders, Regattapoint management and boat owner.”
