I am an amateur radio operator. My daughter, Amy Wruble is with the FOX crew on Ambergris. There is a hurricane "net" operating now on 14.325 mhz. I am able to monitor it, with difficulty, from New York City. I will report what I hear, if relevant.
One station in Belize, in a village named "Scotland", abt 7-8 miles from something that sounded like "Berle Boom". He is operating on batteries.
At 0900 EDT, he reported
"Very strong winds at 0700Z (0300EDT). Now winds from NWN at estimated 35-45mph with stronger gusts. Barometer 29.78" and steady. Major rain. 13.3" in 48hrs, 12.48" past 24hrs, 6.65" in past 9.5 hrs."
Another ham in central Mexico reports having spoken by telephone with his daughter in Belize City. I was able only to copy "Still heavy rain. Winds down slightly and shifted in direction towards the ocean"
I have passed my email address to some of these US hams asking for any info on Ambergris Cay. I will continue to post what I learn here.
