Tonight, the NEMO Branches of Orange Walk and Corozal remain on alert to assist the villages in the Orange Walk District called the Albion Islands.
It is a well-known flood-prone area which has been experiencing flash floods for several days now due to the rise in the Rio Hondo.
Today, 7News went to Orange Walk where we spoke with the Regional Director who told us about the efforts they've been making to assist the villages of Douglas, Santa Cruz, San Roman, and San Antonio. Here's how he explained NEMO's intervention:
Elodio Aragon Sr. - Regional Director, NEMO Orange Walk and Corozal
"We have managed to assist them to be able to come to town. There are a lot of problems that are post, for example, we know that students have to come to school very early, so we have given them priority - they come first in the boats and then the workers and then others."
"We have supplied a free bus for the students - only students to some down. In relation of getting the villages connected to the town we think we have managed that very well."
"We are not out of the forest because we know that the water continues to go up. Today it went up about 2 inches. Last night it went up 2 inches. So, its 4 inches for last night and today."
"We believe that the rivers will be more flooded as the days go by."
It's a broad area that's under flooding, and our News team got back half hour ago, and so we're still finishing up the full story, which we'll have in tomorrow's newscast.
