NEMO Toledo Branch reports that severe flooding is affecting several villages in southern Belize.

Kenton Parham, Head of NEMO Toledo told us that the rural Toledo Villages of Santa Elena, Corazon, Blue Creek, Mafredi and San Jose have all made reports of flooding.

In some villages, Blue Creek being one of them, the rising waters have covered the bridge, stopping traffic from going in or coming out of the village.

Parham said: “We have been active since 7:00 a.m. this morning and we are sending out teams to the different villages as we speak”.
