Rained all night, winds are stronger (35 mph, gusting up to 45 mph), but otherwise not much change since yesterday. Communication remains limited from the cayes. A Caye Caulker resident did manage to get through on a cell phone to LoveFM about a half-hour ago. No deaths or serious injuries were reported. However, Hurricane Keith extensively damaged structures on the eastern end of the island. Still no communication with San Pedro since late last night when it was reported that the Tropic Air corporate headquarters had been destroyed (information remains unverified). Guests and staff are ok at Lighthouse Reef Resort, Spanish Bay Resort, Manta Reef Resort, Turneffe Island Flats and Lodge and Sandbird Caye. Everybody is also safe and sound at Half Moon Caye, Glover's Reef Resort and Long Caye. No information from Sarteneja (phones down). No power in most of Belize City and Ladyville. Shelters in Belmopan are full. The International Airport in Belize City is closed and no flights are available in any part of the country.
