LF Wade international airport resumed operations at 5pm local time after a causeway, the main road serving the airport, was reopened yesterday afternoon.

The island’s public ferry service has resumed its normal schedule and bus services will begin once a roads assessment of all routes is completed.

The majority of hotels in Bermuda are open and are able to accept guests but the BTA said: “Visitors with trips planned to Bermuda should contact their airline and hotel to confirm the specifics of their travel arrangements.”
