Roads, Houses Damaged by Hurricane Nicole in Bermuda

SAN JUAN – Roads and buildings sustained damage on Thursday as the eye of Hurricane Nicole, a Category 3 storm, moved through Bermuda, packing maximum sustained winds of 195 kph (121 mph).

Hamilton, the British territory’s capital, is dealing with flooding, power outages, washed out roads and damage to houses, media reports said.

The hurricane’s eye is about 145 kilometers (90 miles) northeast of Bermuda, but the archipelago is expected to continue to be lashed by strong winds during the rest of the day, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center, or NHC, said.

Bermuda appears to have come out of the storm in relatively good condition, National Security Minister Jeffrey Baron said.

The bridge linking Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton, to L.F. Wade International Airport, one of the most important structures in the archipelago, did not sustain any damage, Baron said.

Some 26,000 customers are without power in the territory of 70,000 residents, electric utility Belco said.

Nicole made landfall in Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 195 kph (120 mph), the NHC said.

Bermuda, a British overseas territory frequently affected by tropical storms and hurricanes, took measures to deal with Nicole.

In 2003, Hurricane Fabian caused extensive damage across the archipelago of some 150 small islands.
