For the record: is anything getting through currently to San Pedro via cell? Thought there were some reports a little ways back.

I was in contact with Tim Jeffers at 10pm last night. He was supposed to call this am but have got no word yet. I wonder if even the cell phone service is gone. It was a very bad connection when he did get through.
As soon as he contacts again I will try to give as complete report as communications allow.

bonzo- when yu get those bad connections have them walk around, even just rotate their bodies, its amazing the difference suddenly.

heard the cellular antennae went down...

but they are able to sporadically call out. very sporadically. like it takes a small miracle.

mateo, i think at one time you were wondering about dixie and the teachers from the island academy...i just heard from dixie's son, who is in gallon jug, that they reached gallon jug by radio and were ok at their house. i'm pretty sure the teachers were there but not positive.

I talked to my husband in Cayo who told me that people were calling the radio stations, but since the power is down, their cell phones will soon become useless. Others are using ham radios to communicate. There are no reported fatalities.

So grateful for the info. Please keep me updated; I'd of course like to get a confirmation that Eva and the teachers are OK.

I know Patty Arceo was in the decision making processes yesterday, so she is fine, as is the family I'm really sure...
