Just got off the phone with relatives (Rhoda Leslie) in Corozal town. They say everythings okay alittle rain and the winds are eeriely still. They are watching the same weather stations we are. Lost communications before we could determine much else but they are all very hopeful. Let's keep praying. Pray for my daughter Renee she's 15 and we did not get to talk. We know she's scared, since she's in a unknown place in unfamiliar weather extremes. God Bless.

Praying for your daughter and the rest of the Leslie family. They are also my family and I'm concerned about them as they live right on the coast.

Just went through a rain squall that was that was heavy! But lasted less
than 5 minutes. No lagoon in the back yard yet -- but 30 minutes of one of
these would bring it back in style!

Guess this is happening all around this area of Belize.

Flooding may yet be a problem!!

Corozal is back to normal life. Sun is starting to come out in small
spurts. The water level is "slowly" returning to normal.

The Corozal Free Zone is not flooded!! And is in very good shape -- though
shut down tight and no business is open.

There you go --

As Keith weakens -- there is the good possibility that it will be blown
North Westerly over the Yucatan peninsula. My -- won't they be so happy in
Miami then?

Hi again, Another Hurricane Keith update. I wish someone would call CNN and the Weather Channel and tell them to quit scaring the people. According to them Corozal Town in northern Belize is being destroyed.
Well that is far from the truth. We have NO mudslides, NO flooding, NO hurricane force winds, NO houses being ripped apart by the winds. Many grocery stores were open every day. We got a little rain but nothing out of the ordinary. We have actually had worse storms when there was no hurricane around. I went into town a few minutes ago and the restaurants are OPEN for business. Our Inn, the Corozal Bay Inn also never closed for business. We are located 60 feet from the waterfront and never had to board up any windows and we slept with the windows open. Only the banks and government buildings boarded up.
The only persons that went to the hurricane shelter were the ones who lived in old wooden shacks. There are a few pools of water in the lower parts of the yard and we get that every time it rains. In town the only persons that have water in the yard are the ones who live in swampy areas.
The bay is calm and the tide is very low. We NEVER had any storm surge. Right now the weather is quite nice but overcast.
We appreciate the satellite photos from the Weather Channel & CNN but do not appreciate when they report what they do not know for a fact.
It is much more interesting reading when someone makes it sound like the end of Belize but it is not true for Corozal Town.
About San Pedro and Belize City we do not live there so we can not report on the happenings there. Thanks for reading.
