Bermuda braced for windy weekend
The Emergency Measures Organisation is monitoring the weather as Bermuda faces a windy weekend.
Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, said: “The public should know that we are preparing for every eventuality. Engineering personnel from the Ministry of Public Works will be on site Saturday morning to monitor the Causeway.
“As a public safety precaution, I want to urge motorists, particularly cyclists, to exercise extreme caution when travelling the roads.”
The Bermuda Weather Service warned gusts could reach hurricane-strength today, especially in elevated and exposed areas.
Two flights to Bermuda from the United States — an American Airlines flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and a Delta flight from Boston — were cancelled because of the weather yesterday.
The container ship Oleander will also set out late from New York because of heavy seas churned up by Winter Storm Riley.
It was expected yesterday that the vessel would arrive in Hamilton on Tuesday.
