Family living in what was left of their home after Hurricane Hattie. Belize City, 1961
Did I ever hear the stories about this hurricane from my granny before she passed. She told me my great aunt was praying in hip deep water for their safety and she also said the hurricane knocked the entire house they lived in off its stick foundation to the ground.... this is what my family rose up from.
