And after the storm - those who don't have to worry about a roof over their heads or putting food on the table, have been wondering when will they get back power and when will school resume?

First, here's the status on the power.

Nationally, BEL has restored power to a 83% of customers affected by the storm. In the Southern zone, mainly Dangriga town that means 75% of customers. Power has also been restored to most of the western zone - 91% of which has power.

The Central zone - which was hardest hit - is lagging behind those areas; power has been restored to 70% of customers. And now, about school:

On Wednesday classes will reopen for some schools in the Belize district - while others have to be delayed until Thursday, Friday and Monday due to storm damage.
