Bermuda Skirted by Storm
HAMILTON, Bermuda — Hurricane Erin strengthened Sunday, stranding tourists on Bermuda but sparing the wealthy island its lashing winds as it veered to the northeast.
Hard rain pelted the island, but the storm’s center stayed 110 miles northeast of the British territory. There were no reports of flooding, wind damage or injuries.
Erin’s sustained winds reached 120 mph, up from 105 mph earlier Sunday, making it a Category 3 hurricane, which can cause extensive damage.
The storm was not expected to grow stronger but could affect Canada within three days, said Richard Pasch, a specialist with the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.
