Helen Offline
I keep hearing rumors that there are "15 unconfirmed deaths in Belize". Loved ones need confirmation.

I don't want to scare people, but we need to focus more on the loss of life issue.

I'm looking for updated information to share with the media:

(Total for Belize including islands)
1) how many confirmed dead since storm hit?
2) how many seriously injured?
3) how many homeless?
4) What is most desperately needed to help that's not listed in posts below?

I will keep you all posted with results of my efforts for US media coverage via the subject in this forum titled "Media Coverage".

Thanks for any help you can provide in getting some answers to these important questions.

Helen,

We know for sure of one death, and one missing; her husband.

It's unfair not to think of the families of those lost in the bus accident this morning. Their families are grieving too.

Thanks to all of you for the information.

Any updates on the list of needs and confirmed casualties number? I need to know how many people Keith has killed in ALL of Belize (including all the islands) and breakdown by location/area if possible.

By the way, I agree that no names of those who have died should be posted here. It's important that people hear about this via phone or in person reather than reading second, third and fourth hand information, or hearing it on the radio or TV. I think Marty should be involved also whenever communication of casualties are reported (both here and personally to their loved ones).

This will now be my resource for confirmed information to report to the media. Please posts all confirmed updates. Thanks!
