That certainly the latest news we have received.
Is there a way we can call the airport and get information.??
We are still so worried about the Carpenter family on their sailboat.
Will there be flights on Tropic Air tomorrow if the storm clears?
Evidently the storm is now "drifting" 1 MPH west. Its about time.

Thanks for your report. I do not know anyone personally down there, have no family or friends on A.C., but have been on this board daily for months. I am glad to hear people are okay. Our vacation to A.C. is Thanksgiving week and I hope everything is okay to go. After being on the board for so long, I don't want to go anywhere else!

Thanks for the information.
My Sister Emily is on a bus from Tikal to Caye Caulker Belize and I believe that they are stuck halfway. Are the roads open yet? When will the airport be open again?

Hurray, hurray! Anyone know if Tammy aka:Sandshaker (from the Basil Jones Resort Office) has come by the airport? I want to be able to call her Mom and give her some good news.

We saw your report & our hearts were joyous! I was wondering if you get in contact again could you ask if anyone has seen any members of the Badillo and Calderon families. I would like to know how are my mother & father(Martha & Ramon) and everyone else. You might know my bother, Picho & newphew Pocho, who work at Tropic Air.

Jerry, can you ask J McDermott is anyone knows about Marie and Armando Escalon down at Casa Gonzo (2 miles south of airstrip & 1/4 mile south of Victoria House)?
Just to know they are all right would be a huge, huge relief.

Luv - seems that word is being used to casually, there does not appear to be any casualties on SP. There does appear to be some people with injuries - seemingly minor given the circumstances
