A bit of a surreal site off Dallas Road this week. Two barges carrying construction equipment and materials broke loose while being towed in high winds and drifted to shore off Dallas Road.

One barge hit rocks near Dallas Road and Olympia Avenue. The other hit the beach near Dallas Road and Cook Street.

An email from Q! listener Pauline Johnson:

Hi Ryan Awram. You were asking for people to post any photos of the barge that washed up on the beach on Dallas Road last night. I think your show just ended when I got home and posted three for you. The paparazzi were pretty busy down there. I’m sure I took close to fifty!
