Power out, trees down after Hurricane Gonzalo crosses Bermuda

Posted: Updated:

   HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) -- Bermuda's police commissioner says many roads are impassible after Hurricane Gonzalo crossed over the British territory overnight.
   There have been no deaths or serious injuries reported, but the damage has been extensive. Fallen trees have torn down power lines, knocking out power to some 28,000 homes. Bermuda's main hospital suffered a damaged roof but is still operating.
   Gonzalo approached Bermuda as a Category 3 storm then weakened to Category 2 strength just before coming ashore with sustained winds of 110 mph. The island was still recovering from last weekend's blast from Tropical Storm Fay, which also damaged homes and toppled power lines.
   Gonzalo is now moving northward over the Atlantic on a track that could take it just off the shore of Newfoundland in Canada. Canadian Hurricane Center officials say the storm isn't expected to be a hurricane by the time it nears Canadian waters.
