first_imgHamilton Island Marina back to normal after Ului Hamilton Island has cleaned up quickly in the wake of Cyclone Ului, the sunny destination back to normal and welcoming guests again.“Hamilton Island’s extensive and rigorous cyclone procedures were definitely put to the test over the weekend” said Hamilton Island chief executive Glenn Bourke.Ului had passed over Hamilton Island in the early hours of Sunday morning causing strong wind gusts of up to 200km/h and rain showers.The cyclone caused some trees to fall and broke a number of windows but there was no significant structural damage to any of the hotels.“Naturally our focus was on the safety and comfort of our guests. We were well prepared for the bad weather and had taken all necessary steps to ‘batten down the hatches’“This included removing all outdoor furniture and bringing all our vehicles indoors, as well as ensuring we had adequate food provisions for everyone.” “We are really proud of our staff and residents, everyone has pulled together exceptionally well. While we still have some work to do, it’s great to see how quickly we are returning to ‘business as usual’.”Flights and ferry services resumed on Monday this week and most activities have restarted on the Island. Power has also been restored to the Island. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: J.Llast_img read more
