Strong wind and waves batter the coast of Bermuda as Hurricane Paulette moves towards the country on Sunday evening (September 13).
Residents were urged to prepare for the powerful storm amid fears of damage and flooding in the region.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned that the biggest threats were strong winds, storm surges, up to 15cm (6 inches) of rain and life-threatening surf and rip currents.
Bermuda officials closed the country's LF Wade International Airport and state government buildings were closed on Monday and Tuesday.
