Actually, October is prime hurricane season in the western Caribbean. September is the peak-peak month, but several of the biggest storms to have hit Belize have come in October or early November, including Hurricane Hatti in 1961 (Halloween) and Iris in 2001. Most of the storms earlier in the season are tropical storms rather than major hurricanes.
