Folks, I just spoke with Irene Miller who is in Austin, Texas right now. She and her husband Mo own the Lazy Iguana Bed & Breakfast on Caye Caulker. Mo is on Caye Caulker and Irene has just talked with him via Ham radio tonight (about 8:00 PM, Oct. 2) and she asked me to tell all those concerned the following:
Aparently there are no serious injuries to anyone on Caye Caulker. There is lots of devastation on the island, specifically, many small homes are gone. The wind is still 30-40 mph this evening with cold rain. People are in good spirits.
Irene is planning to go to Belize on Thursday (Oct. 5) and will take with her, any E-mail messages that people want to send. However, you should wait until Wednesday evening to send any messages to her as they may not be necessary by then. Her E-mail address is --> firstname.lastname@example.org
Ham radio operators can contact Mo (or Charles) at 14.265 mhz. Mo's Call Sign is V31EM.
Irene or I will continue to report information from Mo as we get it.
Regards, Jim Schwobel
