EASTPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A large part of a breakwater owned by the Eastport Port Authority fell into the water at 2 a.m. Thursday. One person is has minor injuries and three boats are damaged.
"It sounded like a truck with a snowplow on it that was down, and scraping across the street," Denise Cassidy, who can see the breakwater from the back deck of her apartment, said.
The pier was built in 1962, and over the years it has undergone extensive repairs. Eastport Port Authority had just secured all the grant money it would have needed to completely replace the part of the breakwater that collapsed today.
