Power was knocked out to 80 percent of Bermuda's electricity grid due to Hurricane Gonzalo, Bermuda Electric Light Co., the island's only power company, said overnight on Friday.

The company reported that about 29,000 customers were without electricity, out of 36,000 metered connections.

The eyewall of Hurricane Gonzalo made a direct hit on Bermuda on Friday night, becoming the strongest storm to hit the tiny Atlantic island chain in a decade, according to the US National Hurricane Center.
