Six years ago to the day, this was the headline read around the world:

"Like the wolf of Three-Little-Pigs fame, Hurricane Keith huffed and puffed and literally blew homes down, but unlike our fairy tale wolf, Keith didn?t stop there. From Friday, Sept. 29 to Sunday, Oct. 1, Keith, a force 4 hurricane with winds up to 135 mph, raged over Ambergris Caye off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea. With the ease of a giant weeding his garden, Keith uprooted trees, flattened buildings, overturned aircraft, and jettisoned boats onto rocks. Meanwhile, the severe, three-day rains Keith brought with him caused floods and mudslides, swept jetties away, and downed power lines."
Rerinted from the Winter 2000 Roundup

Six years later, the economies of both islands have rebounded resoundingly, a testament to the fighting spirits of the islanders. On the 6th anniversary of the Cat 4 storm that ravaged our most populated islands, I salute all the progress made.


here's some reading from the message board during those rough times

Marty how many hours around the clock were you at the computer, sitting in your shellchair?

What a scary time, everyone looking for their loved ones.

Huge lesson I recall, don't try to move/save a boat in a hurricane.

I can't reread the above sites, I recall all too well.
