Hurricane Barrier

Hurricane Barrier

The hurricane barrier in Fox Point is framed by the new bridge over Rt. 195.

NOAA reports todaythat tropical depression 4 is moving west across the Atlantic. I just enjoy the beauty of the city at dusk, but the hurricane barrier is a reminder of the power of nature and the vulnerablity of cities on the coast.

MORE: Jef Nickerson of Greater City: Providence sends a link to hurricane barrier pictures he took, including the inside. Way cool.

UPDATE: Tropical depression 4 is now tropical depression Colin on track to spare the Gulf of Mexico but possibly to come up here.
