Update on utilities on Ambergris Caye:
BEL has got electricity all the way south to Coconuts Hotel. Hopefully in the next two days we'll have power down to Royal Palm Villas. Many thanks to the BEL team and our new friends the Canadian electrical team(mainly from Newfoundland) for the incredible work they have put in to restoring electricity. Must also mention our friends from Mexico....their experts have been helping too, with vehicles and tech expertise. There is still much to do, but it won't be long before the island south of the river is 100% powered up.
T.V.....Coral Cablevision has been connecting T.V. around town....if they can connect you, just pay November's bill and they will hook you up! October's bill is waived.

Phones....BTL and the Trinidad and Tobago Telephone people have been working very hard to get the lines operational again, and they have succeeded in restoring phone communications to much of the island and most of the commercial center of town. When you look at the spaghetti mess of lines they've had to work with, it's an incredible achievement.

Water: restored to 95% of the city water limits. Water goes off around 10:00pm and comes on again at about 6:15am.

Curfew: still in effect, 10:30pm - 5:00am, stay off the streets!

Weather, much better now!

That's wierd.....Orionhunter is staying at Coconuts and says the generator is making a hell of a noise.

I know they are workin' as fast as they can....but sure will be nice when everyone has power again. [Linked Image]

Sandshaker, there IS power all the way down to Coconuts. It was connected yesterday, 26th October.

Please also bear in mind that Coconuts HAD to run a generater during the power outage as they have volunteered their hotel to the NEMO effort and have been using the generated power to provide basic services to our BDF friends who have been staying there.

I will always endeavour to be accurate in my postings....that is why you won't see so many of them......LOL smiley face etc. etc.

GEEEZZZ.....Chris.....don't take offense!
I wasn't implying that you were leading us on in any way.....I only passed on what I was told by a tourist staying there. Of course I was told this yesterday afternoon so I guess by the time they got back to coconuts last night...they were able to enjoy power. That's great!

I appreciate your input....and know that you are responsible in your postings.

I stand corrected.

Keep in mind however....just because some of us don't mind laughing and showing a little doesn't mean that our postings are incorrect or unimportant.

I happen to love laughing.....try to do it often everyday. It's GOOD for you!

Appologies if you took wasn't intended.

Cable TV costs BZ$34/month (US$17) for 44 channels including HBO and several other movie channels. This very inexpensive and liberal setup may be changing soon as Belize has just joined the rest of the world by signing an international agreement to protect intellectual property rights. This means that the cable company will have to pay for the right to rebroadcast some channels.
