BC Hurricane Information

UPDATE: 19 September 2020:

The latest update on Teddy from the EMO has its closest point of approach expected to be 151 nautical miles ESE of Bermuda at 3 AM on Monday, 21st September, 2020. It will be a Category 2 hurricane as it passes. However, the island is not expected to experience hurricane force winds, nor 50 kt winds. We will experience prolonged Tropical Storm winds of 35kts – 45kts, with gusts to 60kts.

Out of an abundance of caution …

Government Buildings will be closed on Monday, and officers are expected to work from home.

Similarly, Bermuda College has cancelled all classes for Monday, but BC employees – faculty and support staff – are asked to work remotely.

UPDATE: 18 September 2020: 

Teddy is expected to pass the Island with storm force winds, with its CPA around 2 a.m. on Monday, September 21, when it will be approximately 102 nm to the east of the Island. Its trajectory is expected to continue to move eastward, away from the Island; the situation remains fluid at this point.

The decision has been made at the College’s EMT meeting today, that Bermuda College will be open on Monday, September 21 for business operations and classes, as normal, at this point.

However, everyone is urged to continue to check your emails, and other alert platforms (BC App, BC website, Moodle, emergency notification), as well as the radio stations and Bernews over the weekend for updates, as needed.

Hurricane Information

When a hurricane is imminent, Bermuda College’s Emergency Management Team (EMT) will meet on a regular basis and provide updates to the campus community. Bermuda College employees and students should familiarise themselves with the various forms of communication channels listed below.

All students and employees should have provided the requested non-College, alternative e-mail , and/or a personal cell phone number so that emergency text alerts can be sent directly to you in the event that the College servers are shut down or out of service. Everyone should also download the free Bermuda College mobile app from the iStore or Google Play as an alternative source of information.

You should also monitor local radio stations, the Emergency Broadcast Station (FM 100.1), Bernews and the Bermuda College website (www.college.bm) for news about the College including closure and re-opening dates and times.
