By BBN Staff: The National Meteorological Services of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) informs that a weak category 1 hurricane Nana is approaching Belize.
Nana is moving to the west at 16mph with maximum sustained winds of 75mph and minimum central pressure of 994mb.
Nana is forecast to move west to west-southwest and is expected to make landfall along coastal Stann Creek District after midnight tonight.
Residents especially those southward of Belize City should be prepared for hurricane force winds of 75 with higher gusts.
This system could also produce rainfall of 4-8 inches with isolated amounts of 10 inches over southern and central Belize which could lead to flash flooding and possible landslides.

All who needed to relocate or are in a shelter should now be hunkering down and weathering the storm. COVID 19 curfew is still in effect.
