Floor of fish plant collapses in Ramea

Residents of Ramea thought they might have to evacuate the community last week after a floor section of the fish plant collapsed into the harbour.

Concern was raised when it was believed that the five plate freezers might topple and cut

the hoses leading to a tank filled with 8,000 pounds of ammonia. The floor section was 20 meters by 20 meters in size.

However, emergency co- ordinator Wilfred Cutler said that the ammonia was safely

pumped out of the tank. Efforts to remove the ammonia from the island in tanker trucks did run into some problems but officials hoped to have the job finished last week.

Mr. Cutler said the 50-year-old plant has been deteriorating

and needs repair. The part of the fish plant with the collapsed floor will have to be torn down

The plant was last used in 1998, but Mr. Cutler said prior to the collapse on August 14 it was functional.

While your here look around at the many photo albums, you'll see the beauty that such a small island town has to offer. Let's celebrate and wish her well in the new Millennium
