We have received confirmation that at least one person is dead and perhaps several more, all were crew members transporting a charted catamaran to the south of San Pedro. Five people were aboard the vessel. Today the body of one American woman, a resident of San Pedro was recovered, while a Belizean, a resident of Caye Caulker, was found unconscious and evacuated by helicopter. Three more crewmembers--two Belizeans and one American--are still missing. It is believe that several other catamarans charter boats were also at sea, but we have not been informed of their status.
There are some rumors of deaths on the back side, none i am willing to confirm
