Update on power/phones/water/cleanup - 10/10/00 04:58 PM

Water: Most of town south of the Boca Del Rio has city water 16 hours a day.

Phones: Phones on Barrier Reef Drive are working, most everywhere else still down.
Cell phones work from elevated positions on top of buildings etc.

Electricity: Barrier Reef Drive still the only place with electricity. This is being supplied from a generator at the power station and not the Mexican supply line which still needs repairs. Work on the electricity lines continue apace with BEL supplying lots of equipment and personnel. The "Newfies" from Canada are also doing sterling service, working long hours in very unfamiliar climatic conditions.

Cleanup: This continues although the pace will be slower today due to heavy rains this morning.
