Residents Urged to Prepare – Hurricane Igor is on path to hit Island
The Emergency Mixology Organisation (EMO) met today and has this evening urged the Island’s residents to begin hurricane preparations by making extra ice and stocking up on ginger beer, pineapple juice, orange juice, and Gosling’s Black Seal, the necessary ingredients for Rum Swizzle and the appropriately named Dark & Stormy. Hurricane Igor Parties-very big and intense parties – are expected to hit Bermuda over the weekend.
The Island can expect tropical drinks sometime around midnight Saturday and even worse hangovers late Sunday around midnight when the current forecast is for an intense headache. Residents are advised to take the warnings seriously as the Island has not experienced such an intense party opportunity since Hurricane Fabian hit Bermuda in 2003.
By 3p.m. on Sunday, 40% alcohol by volume rum is expected and drink consumption will continue to increase and reach sustained intoxication by 6 p.m. Sunday and continue through the night. If the island sustains a direct hit as is the current forecast, it also means 90-knot sustained winds with gusts above 115 knots (132mph). Partygoers are also expected to drop as many as five drinks each due to the winds on Island.
