Powerful winds from Hurricane Humberto began hitting Ber-
muda on Wednesday as thegovernment urged people to stay
off the streets during the British territory’s close brush with
the powerful Category 3 storm. And another growing storm
threatened tourist resorts along Mexico’s Pacific.
Bermuda Governor John Rankin called up 120 members of
the Royal Bermuda Regiment to prepare for possible storm
recovery efforts and National Security Minister Wayne Caines
cautioned everyone to stay inside. Authorities ordered early
closings of schools, clinics andgovernment offices.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said hurricane-force
winds began to hit the island of about 70,000 people by late
afternoon and would probably last into early Thursday.
James Dodgson, director of the Bermuda Weather Service,
said the storm was projected to pass about 130 kilometres to
the north of Bermuda during the night and could produce
tornadoes and dangerous storm surge.
“Humberto’s a big hurricane and we’re looking at the con-
ditions already deteriorating. There’s some very strong winds
kicking in, particularly this evening,” he said.
Mr. Caines said non-emergency medical services would be
closed until Thursday.
“We’d like to ask all of Bermuda to prepare for the storm, to
know that thegovernment and everyone is rooting for us,
and we can get through this,” Mr. Caines said. “We’ve been
through this before.”
