Bermuda gets wind & surf from Colin, now a tropical depression

As a follow up to a post mentioning tropical storm Colin as it passed just off to the the west but close to Bermuda. Colin  was downloaded to a tropical depression and has dumped rain, strong wind and large waves onto the south shore reefs colin_waves_bermudasouthsho and beaches of the island. According to meteorologists pinpointing Colin’s center, the storm is now northwest and its center passed west of the island. Predictions were for up to 3 inches of rain with coastal flooding as large waves on the south facing beaches.

I’ve been particularly interested in this rare for Bermuda tropical storm because we’ll soon be heading there on a vacation and selfishly would rather not be dealing with any damage or disruptions.
