I just posted this to the weather channel bulletin board. Hopefully it will save a heart attack or two from frightened families of residents or tourists on the cayes....
The Weather Channel TV program is giving out wrong (and scary) info on the impact of Hurricane Keith on Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. They are saying that nobody has been heard from in 2 days and that both islands may be "completely under water" with "hundreds of people lost."
WRONG! The cayes have ham radio and a few cell phones operating and the reports are that no lives are lost and no serious injuries, a few minor injuries reported from flying objects. There is major flooding of homes on Caye Caulker and to a lesser degree on Ambergris Caye, but most buildings have not been destroyed, though many have lost roofs.
For the most up to date info, visit //www.ambergriscaye.com and click on the "bulletin board" link at the bottom of the page and from there, go to the "hurricane" bulletin board link. This board has been posting info since the hurricane began and has far better info than TWC, CNN or any TV or newspaper source.
