Hello all,
An official statement from the Department of State will be following…
With a Hurricane Watch in effect, all those persons located on the northern cayes and in Corozal, Orange Walk and Belize City are advised to secure their properties and go west.
The National Hurricane Center predicts the eye of the storm will be a category 5 and hit 27 miles north of Chetumal. Flooding is obviously the main concern.
The Embassy is NOT a hurricane shelter and we do NOT provide transportation.
The airlines and boats are stopping service out of San Pedro within the next couple of hours and have cancelled everything for tomorrow…so if you’re not gone soon, you won’t be going anywhere until Wednesday at the soonest.
We are expecting to lose communications during the course of the night.
Please keep me posted of any events and if any assistance is needed.
822-4011 ext 4219
Good Luck!!!
