The Belizean villages of San Pedro and Caye Caulker were among the hardest hit, Red Cross officials said. Winds clocked at 120 mph blew roofs off homes and demolished makeshift shelters.
"The situation is pretty rough out there right now," said William Skeen, director of the Red Cross in Belize City. "People really are in a frightened state at this time."
The U.S. government issued a travel warning to Americans in Belize because of extensive flooding, the State Department said. Peace Corps volunteers and U.S. government employees in non-emergency jobs were moved out.
