Yesterday (Sept 8th) around ten am we spoke with Peter and Marcia Fox by phone at their home in Placencia (Mariposa). They said they were taking their open-bow boat and two dogs and heading up Mango Creek or some other river in the lagoon to wait out the storm. They indicated they were leaving right away, so that would have been early on Monday. We are praying for their safety and are terriblby worried about them. Perhaps they got word of the changed path and sought shelter elsewhere. So far no one we have spoken with has heard from them. Is there anyone around who is searching for those missing? Please pass the word to help find Peter and Marcia. Thanks and God Bless.

Just spoke to Albert Loewen via cell phone. He spoke by phone with Peter and Marcia this morning. They did spend the night in Mango Creek, very near where the other boats went down. They are fine. Don't know where they are right now, but they are OK! Thank God!
And to Scott, thank you for your concern. Our house is fine. Water came through the lower level as it was designed to do. The dock is gone. They say it looks like winter; half the trees are down, and those standing don't have a leaf on them. Our caretaker's house is OK, too. He is already working to clean up the mess.
Let's remember those who have been left homeless by this storm and those who have lost their businesses. Please ask your friends to donate to the relief efforts.

Gail... Just tried to leave you an email via your page/form, but it wouldn't work. Just wanted to say that there is a group of us here in CO that get together quite often, and if you'd like to join us some time, post via the board or email me. Take care....

Thanks for the report on Peter and Marcia, I'm sure glad to here they are OK. Hope their place survived without to much damage. If you contact them again, please tell them that Paul and Pam from Louisiana are thinking of them, they are in our hearts and prayers.
Wade, great to heare that your folks are also doing OK. We met you several years ago at Rum Point and have been back several times and enjoyed the company of your mom and dad. Have you heard anything on the damage at Rum Point?

Please keep us informed. Thanks again!

Thanks... All I know is that they are fine. The place has not been seen yet. Although I am hearing rumors, and hope that most of them are not true.
