HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Today’s maritime image of the day features the lighthouse in Newhaven, England as it bears the brunt of Storm Ciara on February 9th.

Storm Ciara — or Sabine, as the storm is called in German-speaking countries — tore through Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, and Poland, unleashing chaos and killing at least five people, according to reports from news agencies and social media.

The storm resulted in widespread flight and train cancellations as well as port closures. Two huge ports on either side of the English Channel, Dover in England and Calais in France, shut down operations amid high waves. Ferries were cancelled across the region, including in the turbulent Irish Sea and North Sea.
