News of the North - Monday
Rather quiet. Still minimal traffic. Guess that is the result of 9000 fewer people on the Island.
The San Pedro Police and Belize Defense Force officers stationed on this side of the river conducted numerous patrols throughout the weekend.
THANK YOU!! to Cholo's Golf Cart Rentals for the gas golf cart they volunteered for use by the officers north of the river.
THANK YOU!! also to Ed and Krystyna Walter for the use of their Buena Vista home to house the officers. To Sam Palen for the loan of the SMART (good reception on the North side) cell phone.
Nurse Natalie reports very few persons required medical attention. Dr. Dan, Tina and Natalie were in attendance when 8 1/2 lb. Emil arrived last night.
NEMO has put in a call for a new fogger to be stationed on the North Side of Boca del Rio. (!!!!!)
The two pre-Keith foggers (one from San Pedro and one from Caye Caulker) are at the Town Council Barracks. They are to melded and used south of the river.
Natalie expects that San Pedro Town Council will attempt to spray north of the river sometime this week (18 - 22 July). Hopefully sometime in August there will be a new fogger permanently on this side.
Size is unknown at this time, as is what will be needed to transport the unit. A covered area will be needed for storage.
Please let us know if you may have an area suitable for storing the fogger that will protect it from rain/wind/salt.

Emily proved to be a 'dry run' for the Island. Hurrah!! It is unsettling to have such an active hurricane season so early. NEMO expects that there will be more Watches, Warnings and storms closer to home as the season progresses.
Practice should only improve our hurricane preparation knowledge and activity.
Be glad we have Good Neighbors!!
