Storms wash up assorted creatures

Storms wash up assorted creatures

By Staff Writer - November 30, 2016

Dechets Port hercule BDAs recently reported at Monaco Life, Monaco’s harbours and coastline have been badly affected by large amounts of debris washed to sea by recent storms along the eastern Riviera. Monaco’s maritime services have responded quickly and efficiently to the danger of larger items, such as tree trunks, potentially causing damage to boats entering or leaving Port Hercules and the port at Fontvieille.

A number of animals, living or dead, have also appeared among the detritus, including at least one large wild boar. Several snakes have washed ashore, still living, but none of them have posed any threat, according to the Monegasque authorities, which swiftly removed them for later release.

In the meantime, temperatures have rebounded towards their seasonal norm and largely clear and untroubled skies are forecast for the coming week.
