Hurricane Nicole struck the North Atlantic island of Bermuda on Thursday, uprooting trees, tearing roofs from buildings and leaving thousands of people without electricity. The Category 2 hurricane unleashed 120mph (195kph) winds, resulting in floods on the island and substantial damage to roads and building infrastructure. It’s the strongest hurricane to hit the island in 13 years.
