Thanx for the info on the Amigos del Mar Pier, Marty. We have travelled twice to San Pedro, consider Melanie and Changa as our family in San Pedro and are real glad they only suffered minor damages. We're specially glad that NO FATALITIES have been reported Belize wide. Amazing, considering you guys faced a Cat 4 Hurricane.

Marty, You've done one hell of a job. I monitored a whole bunch of websites during Keith's stomping through the cayes. The information you delivered throughout was by far the most current, up to date and accurate. Here in Puerto Rico we have learned to take CNN and Weather Channel's reports with a full bag of salt as the proverbial grain is no enough. They ALWAYS report on the sensational side of the news, obviously in search of ratings banking on other's misfortunes.

It's now time to focus on rebuilding San Pedro and the rest of your bit of Paradise. We all wish we could be there to help. We can't, at least not until next summer but will help from here. We are now starting a collection drive here.

Best of wishes to you all.

Ruby, Tity, Oscar & Margo

We have been in contact this morning with David Chang with the US Consulate Office in Belize. He has been in contact with Steve Shultz, who is on Ambergris Caye and is a ham radio operator with Tropic Air Airlines.

All inhabitants of Ambergris Caye are reported in good condition this morning. We have no reports of injuries. There is plenty of food available.

The Belize International Airport is not open due to water on the runway.
Therefore, no planes can currently fly out and into Ambergris Caye. The Belize Defense Force has been activated to attempt to get planes into Belmopan that could then do a flyover of Ambergris Caye to evaluate the situation from the air.

We will continue to update this site as we get available information.

Phone service into or out of Ambergris Caye is unlikely to be available in the next 24-48 hours.

Please bear with us as we obtain additional information.

Radio reports that boats with supplies are now leaving for SPO & Cay Ck.

Just got the morning call from Kathryn. Everbody at Sundiver and Caye villas is still fine. They got a sunrise this morning and the only current problem is that the phone line is so bad we only get every other word.
They will probably try to put our boats back in the watet later today. Sounds like the Hurricane party is almost over.

Thank you so much for all of your information. I am so happy to hear that everyone is OK. My fiancee and I will be visiting Belize for the first time on our honeymoon at the end of this month. I am very curious about the status of Cayo Espanto and Ramon's Village (we will be staying at both of these places). All of your news and updates have been greatly appreciated. Any updates on these locations would be great. We really hope that we can still take our vacation and that all is well on Belize.
