Bermuda resident: 'We were ready for Hurricane Gonzalo'

Hurricane Gonzalo has hit Bermuda with winds of about 185km/h (115mph).

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.
