He posted a message on a scuba forum, look at http://www.scubadiving.com/talk/read.php3?num=3&id=144727&thread=144727
he said he expect to be back to normal mid october (this was posted on 7th Oct.)
here's that message:
This is the first chance I have had to get online since Keith visited us.
Hurricane Keith dealt a blow to Ambergris Caye but not a lethal one, the main problem right now is getting electricity and telephones back on, as the 140mph winds blew down all the electric poles and telephone wires.
Wind came in from the west which is from behind the island and while I have not had a chance to dive yet I do not anticipate damage to the divesites as seas were nothing like when we had Mitch pass by a few years ago.
Unfortunately the poorest people suffered the worst and most of the shacks and plywood houses to the back of the island were destroyed.
Most all of the hotels suffered minor damage including my 4 untis at Paradise Villas which had some drywall collapse due to water coming in form the roof.
I anticipate once power is restored most hotels will be back up and running within a week or so.
Mata Chica and Ramons suffered quite a bit more damage due to having thatch roofind which of course blew away with the high winds.
This however can quickly be repaired without too much down time.
I suffered minor damage to my boats, I am happy to report the diveshop and dock is as it was before the storm as is my home.
Its been a long week but I expect to be back to normal mid October.
All the best
