Bermuda Back in Business: "Island Bounces Back from Hurricane Nicole"


Except for the unlucky ones still without power...

From Bermuda Tourism - "Within 24 hours, Bermuda bounced back from one of the strongest storms in the island country’s long history. Hurricane Nicole, a dangerous Category 4 storm, hit Bermuda Thursday, October 13 toppling trees, flooding neighbourhood streets and knocking out power to 90% of the island. However, strict building codes and a tireless commitment to hurricane preparedness paved the way for a wide-ranging recovery effort immediately following the storm. By this afternoon, power was restored to 22,000 customers with 5,300 remaining. There were no major injuries nor loss of life as a result of Hurricane Nicole. All hotels are open with little to no damage and the airport is now open".
