Photos: The Aftermath Of Hurricane Nicole

October 13, 2016

[Updated with more photos] Hurricane Nicole is now moving away from Bermuda, and the task of restoring the island is getting underway, with Bermuda’s experienced crews getting to work to bring us back to normal.

There is visible damage, however despite being hit by a Category 3 hurricane with maximum sustained winds near 115 mph [185 km/h], we have not, as of yet in our travels, seen catastrophic levels of damage, with Bermuda’s strong buildings appearing to have carried us through yet another storm.

Update 10.27pm: Premier Michael Dunkley on the restoration effort

However there are extensive power outages, with BELCO confirming there are 27,431 customers without power due to Hurricane Nicole, which is approximately 90 percent of customers.

“BELCO has started patrolling the system for damage assessment and where they can re-energize safely, without a lot of work they will try to do so,” a spokesperson said.

“We have reports of poles down and wires in the road, so it is essential that all wires are suspected to be live and absolutely avoided. Those are the emergency type issues that are being dealt with first.”

Officials have confirmed the welcome news that there was no loss of life, and we are awaiting official updates on the Causeway, transportation, airport and more, and will update as able.

We will also update with more photos as able, and for our ongoing live updates on Hurricane Nicole click here, and for all coverage of Nicole click here.

    Worked in BDA in the 70′s sad.

  2. Jayne Young (ex ZBM) says:

    Well done Bermuda! I rode the storm with you.. with as many web cams as I could find! So very proud of you all.. your tenacity.. your strength and your preparation got you through! Tough rock dwellers!

    I did the media coverage for Emily when I lived there.. and was a proud Bermudian then.. as I am now! As our Premier Michael Dunkley said this morning ‘Bermuda.. you got this… and you DID IT! ‘

  3. Confused says:

    Possessions and damage can be replaced and fixed. Thankful there have been no reports of injury of loss of life. Thank you God for watching over us once again! Bermuda is Blessed!

  4. Davie Kerr says:

    Well, while there is a fair bit of damage, I’m very glad that there appears to have been no loss of life or even serious injury.

    • frank says:

      I am glad that there was no loss of life
      good job done by the staff at 101.1 this was the first time that I was ever able to pick up the station.
      big shout out to the belco workers my lights are back on.
      on another note Bermuda was once again spared by god it is time
      for Bermudians to turn from their sinful ways and turn to god

      • Sickofantz says:

        what about if there is no god?

      • Otto T says:

        Ditto on these :- good job done by the staff at 101.1 this was the first time that I was ever able to pick up the station.
        big shout out to the belco workers my lights are back on.

  5. Mr. Meoff says:

    Battered and a little bruised, but we stand to fight another day. God Bless BDA

    • Joey-Bag-O'Doughnuts says:

      He already has blessed Bermuda and her people.

  6. Wow the water damage is still not good, looking at the pictures but grateful there is no loss of life.

  7. Paradise says:

    Nothing to be sad about….no loss of life! We are truly blessed!

  8. TimBuc says:

    Nicole came by and gave us a nice quickie!!!

    • Leighsa says:

      I was scrolling and accidentally hit the dislike button but I actually found this humorous

  9. Realitycheck says:

    A long stressful day , but Bermuda appears to have pulled through relatively unscathed . Now down to what we do best , help each other .

  10. Donna says:

    I am really pleased to see no reports of death or injury xx I wish you all blessings on your rebuild x I see 90% without power xx bless the staff at Belco for their work to get it up and running x I do wonder though why don’t you have underground power lines? Is it that it can’t be done ?

  11. Caribbeanlife says:

    All I can say is woah.. damn… Bermuda took that hurricane as if it was a simple thunderstorm. A storm that strong passing through my country, hmf, those winds would easily devastate my country. Damn go Bermuda!!!

  12. Barbara says:

    Glad you have come through this horrendous weather without any loss of life. Stay strong xx

  13. Glenda R. says:

    Bermuda strong and proud! Gods country!

    • Rene Bruwer says:

      Good is good, all the time. Be assured Bermuda were prayed for from as far as Namibia, where I live.
      Praise the Lord!

  14. Broken Glass says:

    in a perfect island belco would have buried its cables years ago.

  15. Nicole says:

    I had my first visit to this beautiful country last week. So happy everyone is safe. God Bless Bermuda! Hope to return someday!

  16. Onion Soup says:

    Whew! So glad no deaths or severe injuries have resulted, even though Nicole created a devil of a mess. I rode out Fabian in 2003 and it looked a lot worse than this when it was done. Thanks Belco, the Regiment and everyone else who is so quick to get started on restoration of normal life. I miss my island home…. :-( Stay safe peeps!!!

  17. Rome says:

    My wife and I fell in love with your beautiful paradise during our honeymoon in 1989 and have visited subsequently several times since. We hope and pray all Bermudians and visitors are safe and accounted for and we look forward to visiting again soon. God bless.

  18. Snowballs says:

    That storm was soft….nothing in comparison to Emily and Fabian. Those two storms were like freight trains passing by at full tilt for hours on end.

    • St. D says:

      We learn from our experiences so each hurricane leaves us better prepared. Fabian taught us the harshest lesson.

      • Snowballs says:

        True I was in the east end for Fabian it was unreal.

  19. Bermuda Girl says:

    So glad that everyone is safe! Well done!

  20. Actually Emily was very short about 40 mins max
    It was Fabian and Gonzales that stayed around for some time still Bermuda’s structures are ITAL back then houses were built on a plot of land at certain angles to allow minamil damage from storms there are some houses that are 300 years old and have hand no lost of structure
    Hats off to the tradesman of yesterday !! You dint need computers to help you design a house just your god giving talents and gifts nowadays you can’t find that skill set as many of those guys are gone and it has not been passed on as the young men are told that there are other forms of occupations that are better,sad !! But many of you yong men have these talents get back into the trade leave a legacy behind
    ” your gifts shall make room for you “

  21. James Rego says:

    Sat in my secure outdoor enclosure for most of it. Only had to go inside when the driving rain became unbearable. For me, the second half was more intense. Thanks to the foresight of our ancestors, we built mighty buildings that can withstand a hurricane’s fury.

  22. Imjustsayin says:

    We can all call ourselves survivers because that’s what we are. I was lying in bed grumbling about not have electricity. But then I thought about those poor people of Haiti and thought we should be thankful that we are so furtunet not to be in their shoes. We are truly blessed. Prays for Haiti.

  23. DIANA S. says:

    THE PEOPLE OF BERMUDA ARE AS BEAUTIFUL AS THEIR ISLAND. GOD BLESS YOU ALL, MY FRIENDS.

  24. Sir Randeville Flash says:

    We flew 250 kites with lots of tail, drank 10 cases of black rum and sank 50 cases of beer. Nobody has a hangover and everyone has still got a good attitude.
    Except for Admiral Helmut who is perturbed because his punt Megalops washed up high on Crow Island, and now looks leaky.

  25. I’m so glad that all of you are OK after Nicole. It looks as though most damage is repairable. Here’s hoping that all of my musical friends are doing well and prospering. Regards, Mike Landers, Nightlife Music Co./Project Arts
