Bermuda awaits second storm

Bermudians are awaiting the passage of Hurricane Gonzalo even as they continue to clean up after the damage caused by Tropical Storm Fay over the weekend.

Gonzalo is due to pass close to Bermuda on Friday as a dangerous Category 3 hurricane.

The Bermuda Electric Light Company, Belco, has indicated that it will seek assistance from other Caribbean countries to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Gonzalo.

A hurricane watch has already been posted for the British Overseas Territory.

The Belco, which is a member of the Caribbean Electric Utility Service Corporation, said it was in talks with the corporation to boost the local workforce already stretched by recovery efforts in the wake of Tropical Storm Fay.

That storm knocked out power for nearly 28,000 of Belco’s 35,500 metered customers.
