Windmill in Grand Étang, Cape Breton Snaps In Suête Winds

Acadien Cape Bretoner, Chris, tweeted a photo of a windmill that has broken in half in Grand Étang. He said it occurred during the Suête(S-E) winds, a term originating from Acadian French, as a contraction of south-east ("sud est").

Grand Étang has recorded wind speeds of over 200 km/hour on several occasions.
