Bermudan governor: 'Look after each other in next 24 hours'

The governor of Bermuda has told the island's 65,000 residents to look out for each other while the worst of Hurricane Gonzalo hits.

George Fergusson advised people to stay off the roads and listen to emergency bulletins.

In an emergency broadcast, he said: "I wish everyone all the best for the next 24 hours. Good luck and look after each other."

A British Royal Navy warship, HMS Argyll, is heading to Bermuda to help with post-Gonzalo relief efforts as it is thought to be the worst storm to hit them in a decade.

Eighty per cent of Bermuda is without power after Hurricane Gonzalo hit pounding the island with winds of up to 130mph.

Locals said buildings, including a hospital, had been damaged but the worst is still expected to come.

And there are fears the "monster storm" could spiral towards the UK.

The National Hurricane Center said the eye of the hurricane would continue to move over Bermuda for the next few hours bringing with it "damaging winds and a life-threatening storm after the eye passes".

Ber News journalist Patricia Burchall told ITV News: "Our situation is pretty dire to be honest. Most the island is out of power."

A local resident, who calls themselves bobbi_bermuda on instragram, posted this video:
