Survivor of hurricane - 10/05/00 07:37 PM
hello i just returned from surviving the hurricane that hit san pedro. believe me the town looks like a tornedo or a bomb hit it. (not that they can't rebuilt it soon). it was so bad that the reef barrier couldn't contain some of the water after a while. people are running out of food and water. so many homes destroyed. so many belizeans hurt and homeless more americans in the island then was reported. we didn't have food for 3 days. i'm a medical student who was one of the lucky ones to get out only about 6 others were on the plane with me the rest are still there along with tons of tourist. there is even a hugh yacht on the runway at the airport. i want to thank the president of my school who was the only one from the school who assisted us. i want to wish and pray for all the belizeans that they get their island back quickly.
