St George’s braced for Jerry

The Town of St George largely avoided major damage in Hurricane Humberto and has begun to prepare for Tropical Storm Jerry.

A spokeswoman for the Corporation of St George said damage to the roof of the western shed building at Tiger Bay was the most serious destruction suffered in the storm.

She said: “Immediately following the passing of Humberto, Corporation workers worked in conjunction with crews from Works and Engineering and the Royal Bermuda Regiment to clear the streets to allow safe vehicular passage.

“Staff from St Regis hotel development also assisted in the cleanup efforts.

“Numerous trees in Somers Gardens suffered damage and the gardens remain closed to ensure the safety of the public during the clean-up process.”
