The entire island of Bermuda was under the eye of Hurricane Paulette on Monday morning, as the storm triggered another damaging winds and torrential rain as it began to move away.
The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami said Paulette was located just above Bermuda around 6 a.m. before the storm began to slowly fade away.
“The storm conditions and torrential rains associated with the southern eye continue over Bermuda,” NHC said.

According to NHC, Paulet’s eye donation will continue to pass over Bermuda during the next few hours.
Satellite imagery showed the island perfectly in the middle of the eye of the storm early Monday, surrounded by thick clouds from all around.
Those in the island reported that “light winds” in the eye, as “singing of tree frogs” continue to roam the surf.
Andrew Moore wrote on Twitter that he could still see “some stars and planets” even after clearing the clouds.
Paulette is currently a Category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, with a high gust, moving north-east at a speed of 13 mph.
“Additional strengthening is likely from Tuesday night as Paulette intensifies north-east towards east-northeast,” NHC said. “Gradual weakening is forecast to begin on Wednesday.”
As the storm moves away from Bermuda, storm conditions will return from the south and southeast passing over the southern island.
Up to 6 inches of rain is possible on the island, with storm conditions prevailing until mid-morning, tropical storm conditions persisting until noon.
As the storm receded, some people on the island described the “still raging” situation.
