– Hurricane Gonzalo hit Bermuda, leaves 29,000 without power (VIDEO) (RT, Oct 18, 2014):
Hurricane Gonzalo hit Bermuda as a Category 2 storm on Friday knocking out 80 percent of the island’s power and leaving thousands of people in the dark.
The storm struck Bermuda with maximum wind speeds of 115 mph (185 kph), reported Reuters. It knocked out power for the vast majority of people living on the island. In fact, 29,000 of the 36,000 metered customers do not have electricity.
From within the storm area, those behind the ‘We Are Bermuda’ Twitter account shared what they could see from their windows.
