E-mail from Cpt Morgan's:

Greetings from Captain Morganís thank you for all the calls and emails inquiring about the well being of our resort and staff! We had evacuated the resort totally by Sunday morning other than a few security guards and maintenance personnel who are all fine. We have endured Hurricane Dean with minimal damages. Preliminary reports show we had some wind damage to a few the roof tops of the villas and cabanas. There is sea weed piled up on the beaches. Most of the staff went to different locations in Belize to be with family so it will take time for them to get back to the resort to assist in the clean up so therefore we will not be reopening until September 29th, 2007. As most of you know we had a closure scheduled 9/1-9/29 for annual maintenance. Once again thank you all for all of your concerns

Nellie is fine, Paradise Villas did well. Some damage to the gardens, and they have not checked the insides of all the condos as of yet. They are expecting some leaks etc.

The end of the dock did get damaged.

Blue Tang Inn by Reef Adventures and Paradise Villas is ok. Our security guard spent the night at the hotel. We have some beach erosion and waiting for the power and water to come back. Otherwise, all is well.

Dear Friends;
The Prime Minister, in his capacity as Chairman of the
National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), through NEMO's
Coordinator retired Lt.Col. George Lovell Sr. has, as of 12:20 p.m. today,
officially issued the ALL CLEAR declaration for all of Belize in the wake of
Hurricane Dean.
Technical teams have subsequently been dispatched to San Pedro Town as
well as to the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts which are believed to be
most affected by the hurricane.
With the ALL CLEAR declaration, the situation has therefore reverted to
normal as employees are preparing to return to work.
In Belize City and the northern towns of Orange Walk and Corozal, the
respective town councils are now engaged mostly in the clearing of fallen
trees in their respective municipalities.
Although there has been no report of loss of life or major displacement of
persons, the Minister of NEMO has nevertheless announced the deployment of
Search and Rescue teams.(search for whom and rescue whom, probably only the
minister knows)
The Mayor of Orange Walk town is reporting minimal damages in that
municipality. In the meantime NEMO's Orange Walk coordinator Netty Johnson
confirmed that there are no casualties in the Orange Walk District. Johnson
reported that over 2,200 persons were accommodated in town shelters and
another 1,000 in village shelters throughout the 26 villages in the
According to Johnson, NEMO Orange Walk is now engaged in damage assessment
and needs analysis particularly in the villages of Douglas and Santa Martha
as well as assisting those few residents whose homes were demolished in the
wake to Hurricane Dean.
According to Netty Johnson, NEMO Orange Walk is now preparing to deal
with flooding conditions that could follow in the villages of Douglas and
San Antonio on the banks to the Rio Hondo River which flows out of
neighbouring Mexico.
In terms of the San Pedro scenario, after sustaining almost 6 hours of
strong winds, no major damage was reported, according to San Pedro's NEMO
Coordinator James Mohammed.
As in Orange Walk, several streets in San Pedro were blocked by fallen
trees. Mohammed reports that a few local power lines were down. The major
damage in San Pedro comes, according to Mohammed, by way of extensive
damages to about 85% of the town's piers with whole sections of piers flung
on beaches in several areas of the town.
Mohammed further reports minimal damages to dwelling places in the
community. He said that Caye Caulker emerged in a better position than San
Pedro Town as there is very little damages to piers in Caye Caulker.
Mohammed reports no loss of life in the area.
San Pedro is currently without electricity and therefore the community
sewer, which requires electricity to pump the sewer from station to station,
is not working. San Pedro NEMO is therefore requesting the gradual return
of evacuees while power is being restored.
According to Mohammed, it should take no more a few weeks for life in San
Pedro to fully return to normal.
Thus far no official word out of the northernmost District of Corozal
which is believed to have been the hardest hit community.

Does anyone have a report on El Pescador Lodge? We have not heard from our good friends there. When is the power expected to come back?

Thanks for all the updates. We were glued to this most of the night. Are anxious to learn anything about San Mateo and especially Holy Cross School -- just across the bridge. Any info would really be appreciated.

This was an email that we had from El Pescador about 2 hours ago

"Thank God Hurricane Dean has passed Ambergris Caye and we are thankful that everyone and everything is safe!! As best as we can tell it passed about 70 miles north of us. We received winds of approx 80 mph with some storm surge (enough to put the dock underwater - but not enough to have any water in the hotel).

- We have some cosmetic damage (minor roof, minor dock and downed trees/landscaping), but we anticipate being able to welcome guests back to El Pescador as of Thursday, Aug 23rd."

Hi folks,

Very glad to hear that Dean seems to have caused much less damage than we feared when hearing "Category 5" this morning. You all are in our thoughts for a quick and safe cleanup!

Any news on how the TMM base in San Pedro, as well as the TMM staff, fared? We owe our best sailing trip ever to those folks, and are planning to return this spring for hopefully another sail with Half Inch. We also have some land on the lagoon side, but are much less concerned about that....tho we might use this as an "excuse" to pop down in the fall to check on things! wink

Thanks, and take care!
