I AM IN LOS ANGELES AND WOULD LIKE TO GET INFORMATION ON THE SITUATION IN BELIZE. MEDIA COVERAGE HERE IS DISAPPOINTINGLY POOR, IF ANY, AND I WOULD LIKE MORE DETAILS ON DAMAGES, RELIEF EFFORTS, ETC.
TO THINK, L.A. HAS ONE OF THE LRGEST POPULATIONS OF BELIZEANS OUTSIDE BELIZE AND NO INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE TO US.

I AM DISAPPOINTED AND UNHAPPY AT BELIZE'S MEIDA FOR NOT GETTING MORE INFORMATION OUT...AND THE U.S. MEDIA FOR DOWNPLAING THE DISASTER. MITCH'S DESTRUCTION HAD WEEKS OF EXTENSIVE COVERAGE ALL OVER, KEITH'S HAS ONLY HAD BORROWED MINUTES. SO VERY SAD.

PLEASE GIVE ME A FEW RESOURCES.

Hello in L.A. I'm in San Diego and am feeling the same as you. Absolutely nothing on any local news. I called the network stations and I don't think anyone in the newsrooms new what I was talking about. And they had no idea that the Cayes exsist let alone that sever damage was done and 100's of people homeless!!

I'm not Belizean, but have visited there and find this lack of information unexcusable of someone?? Realizing that there is much destruction and power outages all over,I would have thought the the radio or Tv stations in Belize would be pouring out information to the rest of the world. Likewise, I can't believe how uninformed people here are.

I even called our main Red Cross Branch and no one there new what I was talking about. I was told just to send a check to their relief fund and make a note to send it to Mexico. I thanked them and said good-bye!

Thank goodness for all these wonderful people on this message board who are rallying up resources and supplies to send to the Cayes.

Hope everyone in you family is safe and getting dryer in Belize, God Bless, Judy
