City Readies for Hurricane Teddy

 18 September 2020

As Bermuda readies for another hurricane, the City of Hamilton reminds City businesses to prepare early and secure their properties to minimize any damage. Anything that can become a potential projectile must be stored safely, including wheelie bins. The last garbage collection in the City before Teddy’s arrival is scheduled for Sunday morning and all bins must be secured by the business owners after this time. There will be no further oil collection until after the storm.

The public is reminded that bringing household trash from outer parishes and dumping it in the City is illegal. Anyone caught dumping trash may be prosecuted. Trash collection in the City will resume once it is safe to do so.

City parks continue to be closed due to damage and clean-up efforts after Hurricane Paulette. With additional damage expected from Teddy, they will remain closed until they are safe to reopen.

With additional leaf litter dropping since Paulette, crews are busy clearing City storm drains to lessen the risk of any potential flooding.

City Hall will be closed for business on Monday. City businesses and residents are encouraged to check the City’s social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for any City updates as Hurricane Teddy approaches as well as post-storm.
