Hi all, everything normal in Belize City, some gusts, overcasts, but if you did not know a storm had been around, you'd never know...Feels like a regular cold front, lots of people in long sleeves, a few sweatshirts. Everyone breathing sigh of relief but concerned for people in Cozumel.

There is no such thing as a "mandatory" evacuation of Ambergris Caye. To require that people leave, you need to be sure there is transportation - and simply put, there is not enough of it (nor money to try to provide it). Evacuation can be recommended - but that's all.
I live 5 miles north - people are riding their bikes past our place now - they were passing by yeterday also, even though it was pretty difficult slogging along the beaches. The pull-ferry is in operation. I saw only one boat go by today - being off the water is still a really good idea. VERY brisk winds now, not much wave action at all. Yesterday was the opposite - high water, mild wind.
