Belmopan, 21st August 2007- NEMO advises residents of San Pedro, Ambergris and Belize City that the curfew has been lifted. The police will maintain anti looting patrols in all affected areas to ensure the safety and security of the citizenry and property.

Those persons who are in shelters should remain there until NEMO advises that it will be safe to return home. Transportation will be provided for those persons who are in shelters outside of Belize City when such advice is given.

A search and rescue reconnaissance sweep will be conducted this afternoon over affected areas to determine the extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Dean countrywide.
