By Aaron Humes: While most of us were sleeping, Hurricane Nana made a quick crossing of the country early this morning.
As of 6 a.m. Belize time, the center of Nana, now a tropical storm, was located approximately 150 miles north-northeast of Guatemala City, moving west-southwest at 15 miles per hour with sustained winds of 60 miles per hour.
Guatemala will take the brunt of the storm’s power today as it weakens but Belize can still see some rain, especially in the South.
Landfall was somewhere between Dangriga Town and Placencia village, Stann Creek District around midnight. The hurricane, a Category One, was small in radius with hurricane-force winds extending just 10 miles from the center. The west-southwest track took it well south of Belize City, avoiding a direct hit.
Belize is now in the all clear with the next advisory coming at 9 a.m.
