Sounds like thunder outside. Can't tell for certain, might just be gusts buffeting crap outside. Actually, don't recall thunder during hurricanes of my youth, although it has been a looooong time and I was very young. Oohh I want to go outside!

From what I can figure out, the eye is about 35nm ENE of us. We have to be
in the south west quadrant. The wind is coming from the west. and there is
minimal storm surge/flooding. Winds have picked up. It is starting to gust
heavily. If my calculations are right the winds extend 40nm from the center,
so, we should begin to feel the full force of the storm soon.

Wind and rain have definently increased.

I noticed that a few business signs have
been blowned away.

Thanks to Ian's posting --

For those not familiar with the coordinates of Belize these were obtained
from the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names and the GEOnet database:

Chetumal 18.5 N 88.30 W
Corozal 18.38N 88.38 W
San Pedro 17.92N 87.95 W
Belize City 17.48N 88.17 W
Belmopan 17.22N 88.80 W

And last posting for the hurricane was: 18.1 N 87.4 W

It is heading straight in line for Orange Walk. If the Hurricane moves
North West -- as predicted -- it will hit San Pedro, Chetumal.

Services -- both electrical and telephone -- still working well -- no
interruptions as yet.
