Just spoke to relatives in Boom. Telephones are still
working, and water supply still going, but of course,
no power. They say that the wind is howling and the
rain is coming down like crazy. Tree branches are in
the streets and water is coming through any holes in
the house(s)- (called 2 different sets of family).
Their homes are filled with relatives from Belize
city, but they are still worried about other family
members who did not leave.
They are all just waiting it out they say, and hope
that tomorrow is different. No news at all from family
in Belize city.
Well, I hope my house is weathering it's first
Hurricane in good form!
I will be calling Boom again in the morning. Will
post again then. As far as relief efforts go, I have a
big garage, if anyone wants storage for anything, or a
central depot of sorts. I live about 20 minutes from
Houston Intercontinental Airport. Just let me know via
