Hurricane Igor Rakes Bermuda and Newfoundland September 24, 2010
Igor can be seen losing its tropical characteristics in this Bermuda radar time-lapse as the storm passed to the west of the island.
Former Category-4 Hurricane Igor caused surprisingly little damage to Bermuda as it passed just to the west of the British overseas territory

Officials said damage was mainly confined to downed tree limbs and beach erosion.

But the storm later drenched Newfoundland, where bridges were washed out and basements became flooded in the storm’s wake.

Officials in Clarenville told Canadian Press that Igor was the worst storm the community had ever seen.

“Every street you drive on, everywhere you go, you see remnants of this — you see a lot of debris, you see fallen trees and a tremendous amount of erosion,” said city councillor Keith Rodway.

The storm brought nealry 10 inches of rainfall to some areas accompanied by winds of over 75 mph.
