A flash flood caused major damage to the Southern Highway north of the Placencia Junction last night.

Traffic in this area will be interrupted for an extended period of time.

This means interruption of road deliveries in and out of the Peninsula and bus schedules. We will try our best to bring you updates on this matter.

In the meantime, please monitor Love FM reports on the radio or on Patrick Jonesís Facebook page. :

I often am asked about the difference between life in Placencia and life on AC. The askers often assume that being "on the mainland" means easier transportation than in the cayes ......
My answer is "not necessarily".
Sending wishes for a speedy resolution to this issue for all those stuck without a way to get in or out ...... not fun.

Work is continuing into the night to replace the washed out culvert along the Southern Highway in the area of the Placencia Junction and Mayan King. Estimation is that by midnight (Monday morning) the washed out area should be passable by motor vehicles.
