Flooding affects families in the North

North floodingMonday, October 19th, 2015. Orange Walk Bureau Reporting: High water levels are affecting some portions of the Northern districts.

Today, an assessment of the reality on  the ground revealed several families from San Estevan, San Jose, San Antonio and other areas have sought to evacuate from their homes.

Last night the National Emergency Response Organization (NEMO) reported that 60 people sought refuge at the San Jose Community Center, while 48 people sought higher ground at the San Estevan Community Center.

While these families have to wait several days before the rains stop, they are asking for help from authorities in the form of food, clothing, and mattresses.

No casualties have been reported and on several attempts, we have been unable to get comment from the NEMO Regional Coordinator, Elodio Aragon Sr or Emergency Coordinator Suleima Celiz.North flooding1
