Hurricane Bill threatens Barack Obama's vacation in Martha's Vineyard
Hurricane Bill is threatening Barack Obama's vacation as it heads towards Martha's Vineyard, after already cutting short Hillary Clnton's holiday in Bermuda.
The US secretary of state and her husband, the former ex-president Bill Clinton, were on Friday forced to cut short a long-awaited stay in Bermuda as the hurricane headed towards the British territory, bringing high winds of 115 miles per hour.
The Atlantic season's first hurricane - coincidentally named Bill - was bringing flood warnings and life-threatening rip currents across much of the Atlantic including Bermuda, where the Clintons arrived on Wednesday. Their stay only lasted 24 hours.
But Hurricane Bill may also be threatening the vacation of President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia, who are due to arrive this weekend at Martha's Vineyard, a getaway for the rich and famous in the northeastern US state of Massachusetts.
