The eye of a powerful Category 3 storm with 125 mph winds and higher gusts is moving toward the British territory of Bermuda, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Hurricane Gonzalo had reached Category 4 strength with maximum sustained winds of 145 mph. Although now weakening, Gonzalo’s forward speed is increasing, and it is still expected to bring damaging winds, life-threatening storm surges, and significant coastal flooding when it reaches Bermuda by late Friday.
Premier Michael Dunkley says that Bermuda is prepared, “well-rehearsed plans for most contingencies are enacted, and as we hope for the best, we are prepared for the worst.”
