Hurrican Igor - Coastal Aftermath

"It's been churning in the Atlantic Ocean for days... but on Sunday hurricane Igor pummeled the island of Bermuda.

Although huge in size (about a thousand miles long from north to south) Igor hit Bermuda in a weakened state of only a category one with winds between 75 and 80 miles per hour. Bermuda may see over six inches of rain before the tropical system pulls away from the island completely. Some reports stated that between eight and twelve feet of beach and sand on the southern end of the island had already been pulled out to sea from beach erosion and battering waves" (fox17online)
