HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) - Tourists and residents in Bermuda are
waking up to debris scattered across roads, some power outages and
minor flooding as Hurricane Bill skirts past the island.
At 8 a.m. EDT Saturday, the center of Bill was about 235 miles west-northwest of Bermuda and about 410 miles east of Cape Hatteras, N.C. Bill was bringing bands of rain and big waves to Bermuda as well as high surf and the threat of rip currents to the East Coast of the U.S.
Bill has maximum sustained winds of 105 mph.
The storm mostly spared Bermuda's pink shores but some of the sand, palm tree debris and coral is sprinkled across the roads.
On the East Coast, a tropical storm warning is in place for parts of Massachusetts. Forecasters say the storm could regain intensity over the weekend.
