from Corozal:
Lost power last night for one hour -- but it went again this morning. They
say none for the entire day -- wondering is this for the whole country??

All radio stations are out!! Must be country wide??

Been 4.5 hours now -- nadda for power--

mad Power went out countrywide at about 7:30 am and did not come back on until 12 hours later. No running water either since some genius tore down all the towns water towers and replaced them with electric pumps.
We have re-named the day "stinky Sunday" since no one could bathe. eek

not
restored until over four hours later. According to a
press
release from Belize Electricity Limited, the blackout
