Harbor Patrol Assistant Timothy Mitchell was killed when he was crushed between a boat and a rock near the Green Pleasure Pier in Avalon Bay.

Several boats had broken free from their moorings during a severe storm at approximately 11:00 pm. Harbor Patrol Assistant Mitchell was attempting to secure one of the boats when his boat came dangerously close to rocks and he either jumped or was washed overboard. His body was recovered at approximately 11:00 the following morning.

At least one other person died as a result of the storm.

Harbor Patrol Assistant Mitchell had served with the Avalon Harbor Patrol for only seven months, and had previously served as a volunteer firefighter in Avalon. He is survived by his parents and two brothers.
