BERMUDA — Hurricane Humberto has largely spared Bermuda, skirting past the island about 75 miles to the north on Thursday night.
The category 3 storm did, however, bring with it a healthy dose of wind and rain, nothing Bermudians – who’ve had to deal with weather events for over 400 years – can’t handle. Though damage was minimal on the island, cleanup is already underway and the island remains open for business.
The L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA), as well as the causeway (the main road serving the airport) both reopened yesterday. All Bermuda Visitor Services Centres and ferry service throughout the island will reopen today.
Additionally, all of Bermuda’s hotel properties are operational and ready to welcome guests. For any visitor whose travel plans were impacted by the storm, the Bermuda Hotel Association’s booking guarantee allows them to modify their hotel reservations without penalty.

“With the airport reopened, the cleanup 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, CEO of the Bermuda Tourism Authority.
Dallas is also reminding visitors of several upcoming high-profile events on the island, including Taste of Bermuda (Oct. 11-13), the Bermuda Championship at the Port Royal Golf Course (Oct. 31-Nov. 3), and the World Rugby Classic (Nov. 2-9).
