Here's a message from Tony Rath. He flew over today and got these aerial pictures of the area. Lots of Monkey river Seine Bight, and Placencia, Luba Hati, Jaguar Reef, Mariposa, Indian Creek, Nautical, Kitty's, Hamanasi, Rum Point, Roberts Grove, San Antonio, San Jose, Serenity, Silver Creek, Turtle Inn, lots of vegetation and banana pictures.

Incredible work by Mr. Rath, as usual....

Marty

=================

We did a rough over flight today with a digital video. Was able to pull
off a few images that work as stills. You can find them at http://www.belizenet.com/iris_fnl/


Sorry about the quality of the images (but that is what you get when you
only have connections and no talent ;> )

editorial comment: he's one of the VERY BEST photographers to ever shoot Belize, tho a modest one it appears.

Marty


Some quick notes:


1. The hurricane appeared to cut a very tight path, as at times you
could see completely downed trees, and not 20 yards away, trees with all
their leaves still standing tall.


2. The wind did not seem to cut a continuous swath, but appeared to form
rivers of destruction. This is very obvious in some of the vegetation
photos.


3. The hardest hit areas (which we already know) were Monkey River,
Placencia Village and the Mayan villages along the southern highway.


4. The severe damage appears to begin at Seine Bight and continues
through Monkey River. But some of the major resorts such as Robert's
Grove, Rumpoint and Kitty's appear to have weathered the storm well.


5. If you have other questions about the photos, please contact me at
[email protected] .


We will be heading down early tomorrow morning to Placencia with a load
of supplies from Dangriga. We will head to the villages along the
Southern Highway the following day if we can organize supplies.
Hopefully we will be able to provide images (better quality) and more
first hand reports tomorrow night.

Tony, thanks for the pics and information. Too bad the 2 main website's for Belize can not be linked. Why is this?
Seems to me that both are trying to support and promote Belize.
Keep sending your info please.

Tony,


Thanks for going through the effort to provide the rest of us with a
visual of what happened on the ground. You're our link to reality and we
appreciate it.

Got some more pictures from Carmelita Bradley of Caye Caulker, who had some relatives fly over Placencia today.

I do not have time to HTML them up into a web page, so download this 658k zip and look at the 12 JPG images...

Truly remarkable photos and an extraordinary job by Tony Rath.

Given the winds and storm surge, tt's amazing how many palm trees are still standing.
