For weeks we've been reporting on the heavy rains and all the infrastructural and community problems it has caused. But tonight, more than just talking generally about rain, we can put a specific number to it.

The Meteorology Service has shared rainfall figures for August through to November, and they are waaayyy above average. Starting with August September and October, you'll see the comparison in this graph. The 2013 rainfall is in blue and the average rainfall for those months from 1981 - to 2010 is in red. At every one of the stations, from Libertad in Corozal to the Punta Gorda Agricultural station, rainfall figures were up. The increases were greatest in Libertad - where it went up by more than 100%, IN Belmopan where it went up form an average of 26 inches to 44 inches and Middlesex, where the 30 year rainfall average is 40 inches, but this year it was 59. Punta Gorda and Baldy Beacon were the only stations where rainfall was more or less on average.

November, continued on that trend, but took it to another level completely. Libertad station was up by 185%, from 3.3 inches on average to 11 inches of rainfall in 2013.

Similarly Orange Walk recorded a 101% increase, from a 30 year average of 3.9 inches to 8 inches of rain in November 2013. Belize district was up 25% to 10 inches of rain, while inland areas that usually record about 6.5 inches of rain in November, recorded more than twice that at 13.5 inches.

Government has not put an economic cost to the rain-damages as assessments are ongoing but there are critical losses to agriculture, road infrastructure, and community resources in areas such as Crooked Tree.

I have been surprised to learn that many people think I am building the big cement building next to my 'humble' abode.
Two brother; one from Nova scotia, are the owners next door.
