Hurricane Gonzalo pounds Bermuda with strong storms

Hurricane Gonzalo has hit Bermuda with winds of about 205km/h (127mph).

Eighty per cent of the British territory had lost power because of the hurricane, Reuters quoted Bermuda Electric Light Company as saying.

Bermuda, an island chain and affluent insurance hub in the Atlantic Ocean, frequently sees strong tropical storms.

The category three storm swept by the eastern Caribbean earlier this week before heading north towards Bermuda.
