if you need to find out about someone in Caye Caulker, email me at [email protected] adn i'll have Carmsn chase them down.
Here is her latest information:
I am glad if I can be of any help.. Let me know if there are
specific people you want me to check out for you.. will do..
there was a barge there when I got in yesterday but it was the Brits with
their vehicles. Today the Brits left.. my sister said they have been out
there since Tuesday. the BDF went out today..
when you are approaching the island you can look up and count the coconut
trees that are standing up and the pine trees.. you can couont the limbs
that are still on them..
The water is murky and the beautiful beach that they had been working on is
all broken up.. You know if that hurricane had come from the east and hit
the front of the island it would have been adios to everyone and all.
Looking around I can say that it will be a while for people to get back on
their feet and people need help.. more than 50% of the islanders that are
homeless either have very little or no$$$.. the lobster season is very bad
and now with this we can forget tourism for a while as hotels and
restaurants will be closed down..
The NOvelos are my in-laws and an estimate of their loss is about
$50,000.00. The hotel everything is ruined.. mattresses, fans etc. they
lost 2 of their tourists boats and 2 engines. nothing is insured.. and
their are many more people in this same boat..
I have just had a chance to go down the front street.f. will go visit the
split and the back street and take pics tomorrow.. but keep in touch before
I leave in the morning .. like I said let me know of names of people to get
info for you...
