Advisory #1: Tropical Wave Approaching Belize
9pm Sunday night:

The National Meteorological Service hereby informs that an approaching tropical wave will cross tomorrow after the area of low pressure that crossed over the weekend. As a result of the passage of the area of low pressure, some areas in the Orange Walk and Corozal districts received as much as five inches of rainfall during the past 48 hours. The approaching tropical wave will continue to support very wet conditions persisting at least through to mid-week. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected over most areas of the country producing daily rainfall totals of one to three inches with locally higher amounts. A flood watch remains in effect in keeping with the flood advisories issued for areas prone to flooding as the weather is expected to get worse in the coming days. The Hydrology Department will continue to provide flood forecasts.

NEMO hereby informs that shelters are opened in the villages of Carmelita and San Jose in the Orange Walk District to support 10 and two families respectively. The Orange Walk Emergency Committee chairman and the area representatives are in communication with the minister responsible for NEMO. The ministry responsible for NEMO Emergency Coordinating group was activated today.

The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and the Orange Walk Town Council have deployed to clear drains and repair the culvert by Tower Hill which was partially washed away. Traffic is being diverted through the Guinea Grass Palmar road. The village council

chairpersons are asked to be on the alert for persons who may need assistance. The contact numbers for NEMO Orange Walk are 302-2232, 302 3228, 614 7177 or 615 7452. Other parts of the country which have received lesser amounts of rainfall are being monitored.

People living near rivers, creeks, and low-lying areas are cautioned to be on the alert and take the necessary actions to save lives, including moving to safer areas. Drivers are asked to drive slowly and to put on their hazard lights when driving in the rain. Review your family emergency plan. Stay alert, be prepared. NEMO staff remains on alert.

Advisory #2: Advisory #2: Slow Moving Tropical Wave Affecting the Country

The National Meteorological Service of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) hereby inform the general public that a slow-moving tropical wave is affecting the country today. This comes after an area of low pressure caused flooding in the northern districts on Sunday, June 19, 2022. As a result, some areas in Orange Walk and Corozal have already seen upwards of ten inches of rainfall during the past seventy-two hours. The tropical wave will continue to support very wet conditions persisting at least through to mid-week. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected over most areas of the country producing daily rainfall totals of one to three inches with locally higher amounts.

A flood warning is in effect for Corozal and Orange Walk. A flood watch is in effect for other areas of the country that are prone to flooding, namely the coastal villages and municipalities' low-lying areas. Most rivers are rising slowly, be vigilant. A small craft caution remains in effect.

1. If you live near a river, creek, and low-lying area you are cautioned to be on the alert and to take the necessary actions to save life.

2. Clean drains, and trim trees which can fall and damage your home.

3. Avoid walking or driving through flood waters, turn back, and don't drown, just six inches of moving water can knock you down and one foot of water can sweep your vehicle away.

4. Check on the elderly and people with disability.

5. Move to safety early, do not wait until it's too late. Move before nightfall. Before leaving home secure your pet.

6. If your home or building is likely to flood, before leaving turn off your main electrical switch box.

7. Boil or purify water in flooded areas before drinking it.

8. Fishers are asked to go to sea with a radio and knowledge of the weather conditions.

9. Drive slowly and put on their hazard lights when driving in the rain.

10. Review your family emergency plan.

NEMO's emergency hotline is 936. Stay alert, be prepared. NEMO is on full alert.
