Wind Damage At Yachting Center In Deltaville

Sunday, powerful wind ripped the roof off of covered docks and caused another dock’s roof to collapse at Regatta Point Yachting Center on Broad Creek in Deltaville. Southside Sentinel reports it happened at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday as a sudden storm passed over Middlesex County’s eastern tip at Stingray Point. The wind was funneled into the open side of a dock with eight covered slips. It lifted the metal roof, support beams and the entire structure. Timbers measuring six inches square were snapped. Some of the debris landed on the roof of a covered dock next to it. The intense wind and extra weight caused the second dock’s roof to shift and collapse.
