The Bermuda Tourism Authority made it known on Friday that the islands of Bermuda are once again ready for visitors following Hurricane Humberto, which passed about 75 miles (121 kilometers) to the north.

The storm’s 120 mph (193 km/h) winds left much of the island – over 27,000 people – without power but that has largely been restored.

Ferry service will resume Friday.

“Bermudians have plenty of experience in dealing with weather events of this kind,” the agency said in a statement, adding that cleanup from the storm was “minimal” and that the L.F. Wade International Airport reopened at noon Thursday.

“The island is open for business,” it said.

The British Overseas Territory, which relies heavily on tourism (the other major industry is insurance) has a subtropical climate and lies in the hurricane belt.
