HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) — U.S. forecasters say the reconstituted Tropical Storm Gabrielle could drop up to 4 inches of rain on Bermuda today, with up to 6 inches (18 centimeters) possible in isolated spots.
Gabrielle hit at Bermuda with wind, rain and rough surf early today as its center passed near the wealthy British territory. Forecasters predict a possible storm surge of up to 3 feet above normal.
Government authorities had urged people in the storm-hardened Atlantic territory to finish last-minute preparations, and some residents left work early. Customers crowded into supermarkets to buy candles, batteries and other emergency supplies. Air and ferry service is suspended.
Farther east out in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto is nearly a hurricane as its maximum sustained winds increased to 70 mph. It currently poses no threat to land.
