Tropical Storm Keith brought gale-force winds and rains to Bermuda on Thursday, but it posed little threat of major damage as it headed for probable extinction. Late Thursday, the storm's center was about 200 miles north-northeast of Bermuda, moving east-northeast at about 40 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It carried winds of up to 45 m.p.h.

The dark clouds of Hurricane Fabian lifted Saturday, revealing the devastation wrought by the most powerful storm to hit Bermuda in 50 years: pulverized trees, shorn rooftops and thousands of homes without power. "We have experienced a considerable beating," said John Burchall, a government spokesman. Damage estimates were expected to take days.

Hurricane Emily gained unexpected strength early Friday morning, tossing boats out of the water, flipping cars, tearing off roofs and injuring at least 16 people with its gusts of up to 112 m.p.h. as it raced across this island resort and into the Atlantic Ocean. Forecasters were stunned that Emily gained strength even as it picked up forward speed. No deaths or serious injuries were reported, Bryan Darby, a Bermuda government spokesman, said. "We've been very lucky," Darby said.

Hurricane Gert may still be a threat to Bermuda, and residents of the Atlantic island need to keep a watchful eye on the storm, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami reported. "All interests in Bermuda should monitor this storm carefully," John Juiney of the center said. The director of the forecast office in Bermuda said residents were preparing in case the storm hit, but Gert was expected to remain 175 miles south of Bermuda for three days.

Tropical Storm Arlene threw 50-m.p.h. winds and thundersqualls Wednesday toward Bermuda, where a blind sailor attempting a solo voyage across the Atlantic was seeking refuge from the hurricane season's first storm. Sailor Jim Dickson, 41, struggling with a broken computer navigation system, misread his Braille compass Wednesday, got off course for several hours as he raced the storm toward the resort island and will be forced to spend the night at sea, officials said.

Blind sailor Jim Dickson maneuvered his sloop Eye Opener through stormy seas and safely into a Bermuda harbor Friday for repairs needed before he resumes his attempt to cross the Atlantic alone. "I'm very glad to be here," Dickson said from the deck of the 36-foot sloop after tying up at a pier in St. George's. "There were a few moments when I didn't think I was going to make it."
