No Royal Gazette on Thursday


The Royal Gazette will not be publishing tomorrow because of Hurricane Nicole.

“The timing of this storm means it would be late tomorrow evening before we could print and circulate a newspaper,” Jonathan Howes, the chief executive officer of Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd, said of the decision taken this morning.

“In the interest of keeping the roads clear for emergency services and the safety of our staff, we will focus our Thursday reporting to our online platforms.

“We will publish a paper on Friday and Saturday with special hurricane sections covering the impact of Hurricane Nicole on the island.”

Mr Howes added: “I would encourage the public to share their photos and storm stories with the RG. I would encourage everyone to take this storm seriously and to stay indoors. Additionally residents should respect the clean-up efforts and stay off the roads Thursday evening.”

Residents can stay informed about the progress of Nicole by following our Cover-It-Live feature, which will be up and running from 11am.

Once Nicole has blown over, we would like to hear from you. Please reach out to us at news@royalgazette.com to share that your experiences, and send us your storm photos at storm@rg.bm or rgphoto@royalgazette.com.

For those of you in Twittersphere, please use the hashtag #HurricaneNicole.

Be safe, Bermuda.
