Hurricanes in 1987
In the 1987 hurricanes, I was at work on a night shift at Thames Chase. I was terrified as I was being chased up the road by 8×4 sheets of metal!!! I escaped this and got a lift home and there was debris all over the road, so I started to clear it up to get to my house. I was walking down Dock road and spotted a large roof coping hanging half way down off a maisonette. I ran to tell the person who was living there and told him to get out of the building in case the coping fell down!! The Fire Brigade turned up (don’t know who called them) and they got it down safely. When I got to my house I noticed that my neighbour had lost all his roof tiles but I haven’t lost any!!When I saw my son he had been travelling to Bata’s for work and was nearly hit by four roof tiles from the Commonwealth House shops! A very frightening experience, did you have a scare in the hurricanes?
