June 8, 2022 | Colin O. Jarrett | Tropical storm Alex, the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season brushed past Bermuda on Monday morning knocking out power to hundreds of customers.
Cuba was not spared as Alex killed three people and caused flooding in parts of Florida.
Tropical Storm Alex weakened overnight from 70 mph to 65 mph as it passed around 100 miles northwest of the island.
The Bermuda Electric Light Company BELCO, the island’s sole power provider, reported 1,000 early-morning outages, but by early evening, the number was down to just 30.
It’s #TimelapseTuesday, and we’re taking a look at the path of the first named storm in the Atlantic Basin this season, Tropical Storm #Alex. This imagery was captured by the #GOESEast 🛰️ from June 3–6.
