TRURO, N.S. - When George Kharma found himself stuck in traffic on Wednesday, he decided rather than just grumble, he would drone about it.

“I thought yesterday since I got stuck in traffic why not go and see how bad it was, to get an aerial look to see what was causing this continually,” he said on Thursday.

As he was flying his drone and videoing the extent of the flooding, Kharma also wondered why traffic authorities simply don’t build a causeway to eliminate the flooding issue that causes so many issues each year.

“They did it in Pictou, they did it in Cape Breton,” said the Valley resident who has turned his drone hobby into a small side business.

“So I thought if we had some real good aerial footage people could see what exactly they’re up against,” he said. “And it looks like it’s really only that short little piece of roadway (between the railroad tracks and the Park Street bridge).”
