I just thought I'd start this thread so that locals can share up to date news and so that those who have families and loved ones in San Pedro can get information.

Right now it is raining hard. The wind isn't too bad but the combination of high tide and wave action has already caused beach and dock damage.

Shelters are at the High School and the church on Sea Grape Drive. Channel 7 is carrying local news on TV. Channel 8 (San Pedro) is carrying national hurricane news.

The puppies and kittens at SAGA are safe.

That's the best update I can give you.

I'm worried about my little friend Alex Chavez down there. He's only 12 and lives in the Boca Del Rio area in San Pedro. If anyone knows him please let me know he is safe and how I can help him. We're all worried sick about everyone there! I was here for Katrina and I know what it's like.

Thank God! I wish they had evacuated. Are they in a shelter that you know of? I tried to call him earlier but whoever answered didn't speak english.

Hi, I hope we get some new soon. I'd like to hear that people on Ambergris are safe. Then hear news of pets and buildings, vegetation and the reef. And how is the mainland? When was the last direct hurricane hit like this? Alice, UK

Does it look like you may have some flooding?

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Do they have any idea exactly where Richard is to make landfall? How much flooding is expected?
What if anything can we do from USA Mainland to help?

I know lots of questions but all i can do at the moment...
I'm jsut waiting /counting until i can come back down.
