Residents invited to hurricanes talk

Bermuda Weather Service director Kimberley Zuill will present a free lecture on hurricanes at the Bermuda Zoological Society next Thursday.

The talk, “Hurricanes 101: A Bermuda Focus”, will focus on how hurricanes have shaped and continue to almost annually shape Bermuda's history, and geology.

It is designed to offer an introduction to how, where and when tropical cyclones, including hurricanes, form, what mechanisms make them move in different patterns, where the strongest winds are located, how tropical storms differ from winter gales, and how to act on local watches and warnings.

Volunteer organiser Lisa Greene said in a statement: “The main purpose of these lectures is to provide the community with free and informative talks related to the mission of the BZS, which is to inspire appreciation and care of island environments.

“In the upcoming months, the lecture series will cover topics such as the Sargasso Sea and turtles in Bermuda.

“We encourage the public to take advantage of this excellent opportunity.”
