HAMILTON, Bermuda (Reuters) - Bermuda residents stocked up on food, water - and alcohol, for traditional hurricane parties - as Hurricane Leslie swirled slowly on Thursday toward the wealthy British overseas territory in the Atlantic Ocean.

Bermuda is not expected to take a direct hit from Leslie, a Category 1 hurricane, the lowest on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale, as the storm veers slightly east of the tiny island of 20 square miles (52 square km) with 65,000 residents.
