I was in Belize City during Hattie. It was a terrifying experience.

There is an excellent book called, "Our Man In Belize", written by a diplomat stationed at the US Embassy in BC during Hattie which is a very good read, as well as full of information about what they did, what happened, and how they all (and their families) managed to survive. I can't think of the author's name, but you should be able to find it by the title.

The video presentation at the Belize City Museum is boldly graphic and real. It shows a fraction of what it was like "after" .......... just that little bit of film is terrifying. Natalie, we're grateful that you survived.
