Bermuda is just now beginning to feel the effects
of Cristobel and the associated weather patterns. It's not a big storm,
but from what I understand another system is absorbing her and pushing
thunderstorms and gales up here.
No-one is really worried about this storm. As
always since Emily rocked the Island in 1987, Bermuda has an excellent system of
warnings, which are publicised by the local press. Information about potential
threats is very accessible during hurricane season.
On which note, I was very impressed recently when
the Emergency Measures Organisation in Bermuda sent my household a note to say
that we would be amongst the 10 (?) per cent of homes at risk from flooding in
the event of a cat. 3 or higher storm. It pretty much means that if you
don't live on a hill, watch out, but hey, good initiative. They provided a
questionnaire and some useful information and advice.
Anyway, I'll be posting again if anything
