Bermuda recovering after Hurricane Gonzalo

Bermuda recovering after Hurricane Gonzalo

Bermuda is bouncing back after being struck by Hurricane Gonzalo, which hit the island late last week.

Gonzalo struck Berumda as a Category 2 storm on Friday (down from a Category 4 as it approached the island), damaging trees and buildings and closing several roads with debris. Only minor injuries and no deaths were reported. The island was hit by Tropical Storm Fay just a week prior.

Port-of-calls for cruise ships were cancelled today as the island cleaned up. As of Sunday evening, Bermuda International Airport had reopened.

Gonzalo also passed by Canada’s east coast as a Category 1 storm, soaking the southern and eastern shores of Newfoundland as it travelled into the Atlantic.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Hurricane Ana was downgraded to a tropical storm as it neared Hawaii, hitting the island of Oahu with heavy rain and minor flooding.
