BTA: Bermuda Is ‘Open For Business’

September 19, 2019

Last night, Hurricane Humberto passed by Bermuda, but ”Bermudians have plenty of experience in dealing with weather events”  – more than four centuries’ worth — so “damage was minimal, clean-up is underway, and the island is open for business.”

This is from the BTA, which said, “Last night, Hurricane Humberto, a category 3 storm, passed about 75 miles to the north of Bermuda, giving the island a healthy dose of wind and rain. But Bermudians have plenty of experience in dealing with weather events of this kind – more than four centuries’ worth of experience, in fact. As a result, damage was minimal, clean-up is underway, and the island is open for business.

Clean up underway today:

“The L.F. Wade International Airport [BDA], as well as the causeway [the main road serving the airport], both reopened at noon today. All Bermuda Visitor Services Centres will reopen on Friday, and ferry service throughout the island will be restored Friday as well.

“Additionally, all of Bermuda’s hotel properties are operational and ready to welcome guests. For any visitors whose plans were altered by the storm, the Bermuda Hotel Association’s booking guarantee allows guests to modify their hotel reservations without penalty.

“With the airport reopened, the clean-up well underway, and the damage minimal, Bermuda is ready to welcome visitors and groups already booked to visit this weekend and beyond, along with those inspired to do so by today’s blue skies and perfect temperature out here,” said Kevin Dallas, the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s CEO.
