Morning all....

Where do I begin? I've been out and about this morning trying to gather some accurate info.
I had not been to the area where the boatyard is until this morning. Went back to visit Tom and Sari and see if there was anything I could do.

I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment by the conditions I saw. I will be posting some new information once I collect my thoughts and get them organized.

In the mean time, I have a favor to ask.

The situation here is bad and in order to try and keep things organized and the flow of info coming, we need to consolidate our posts on here.

Everyone has been great about getting info up as soon as possible. If we could just separate topics into Urgent & Non-Urgent issues, it would help a lot.

The Disaster Relief topic is place for everyone who is interested in sending supplies.
Please try to stick to the topic....I know it's hard....but that is how a lot of info gets lost in the jumble.

Maybe we can have a topic for just General Questions.

Missing Persons
Health Care
Disease Control
Utility Restoration
Disaster Relief
Info to Property Owners Living Abroad.

(these would go into the GENERAL QUESTIONS topic)
Is a certain place still there?
Did a certain place sustain much damage?
Can you say hello to my friends?
How long before I can vacation?
Should I change my vacation plans?
Comments of a general nature.
All rumours.
PLEASE NOTE!...This is not to say any of these issues are not important. They are. The priorities at this point are the Urgent Issues and we need to focus on these in order to get things done.

I hope everyone doesn't think I'm taking charge and ordering people around. I don't intend for it to sound like that. It's just that after my trip around town this morning, it was PAINFULLY obvious what was really important and what can wait till later.
So please help us out on this.

Thanks so much!
I will post the separate topics....and please use these to organize posts. Remember only post info that you have first hand knowledge of....not assumptions. This is important.

We need to all try to remain calm and organized and work together as a team.
(Which is really hard to do at this point, I can tell ya that.)

I just wanted to say thanks. You always send thoughtful and informative messages. I have been trying to help the best I can from here. There have been a few things going on in way of relief here in Salt Lake, which is so good to know and to be a part of. I hope that everyone receives the help they need. I also hope to come there in November to help with whatever needs to be done, if it is not going to be a nuisance. I don't want to step on any toes. I just want to help! Keep up the great messages. It's great to see such great people communicating.

Sandshaker, I echo Carrie's sentiments. I, too, had made plans back in August to come down November 13th. I had planned to dive, but after Keith, decided I would come and help with whatever was (is) needed. However, if I will be underfoot, or an extra burden to the island in regard to food, water, and an extra strain on utilities and infrastructure, I wonder if I should not come (even though my heart wants to badly). My travel agent is telling me that I must decide by Friday. Advice? Kim Matson in Wichita, KS

We as regulars on this board, have always answered all questions honestly from our point of view for the good people vacationing on Ambergris. We all want their tourism to get back in full operation, but they need time, and our patience. I too would love to come to San Pedro now, but from all I have read and I have read all the postings, we can best serve San Pedro to wait till they have rebuilt. We would just put a strain on them, more than a help now.
