There has been some flooding in the Cayo District over the past 48 hours due to persistent rains. Between Midnight and 1:00 AM Wednesday Night/Thursday Morning, NEMO personnel were called out to Unitedville where a portion of the George Price Highway was under 2 to 3 feet of water due to flash flooding. A few houses were also affected. Also, the low lying bridge across the Macal River in the Twin Towns of San Ignacio/Santa Elena and the low-lying bridge at Iguana Creek (Spanish Lookout Road) are currently under water. Some flooding has also been reported in some areas of the Toledo District. There has been no need for evacuations so far, but NEMO personnel, including river monitors, are keeping an eye on the situation in these areas.
