"At this point, no loss of life and very few injuries. Mostly buildings and roofs. So I don't think medical supplies are really needed at this time, but I could be wrong.

I'll let you know more when I know. There are reports from San Pedro that everyone is fine but they need lumber and building supplies. Also food and clothes."

River finally peaked at mid-day today, 3.5 ft higher than we have ever seen
it before. The sun came out at last and the rain stopped. The road to
Belize, which was passable early today, was clossed due to flooding from
mid morning.

Crop losses from flooding and strong winds will be very significant. Within
my own area grain losses will exceede $250,000. 00. The citrus industry
will have losses. Bananas are reported OK. No structural damage has
been reported in Cayo, nor thankfully loss of life.
