By BBN Staff: The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) says that the major threat from Hurricane Eta to Belize is heavy rainfall and flooding.

Category 4 Hurricane Eta made landfall on the northeast coast of Nicaragua.

The system is expected to move to the west and then to the west-northwest over the mountainous terrain of Nicaragua and Honduras after that the track forecast remains uncertain.

Several models show the remnants of Eta moving as far west as the Guatemala/Honduras border before turning northward to north-eastward across Belize and into the north-western Caribbean Sea.

There is a possibility that the remnants of Eta could develop into a tropical storm over the weekend as it heads generally north-eastward away from Belize or it could move over Belize before moving out to sea.

Rainfall totals of 10-20 inches with locally higher amounts are anticipated.

Winds are becoming gusty which could produce large swells along the coast.

Belize is outside the Hurricane and Tropical storm wind field however the outer cayes are currently experiencing an increase in wind and wave action.

A small craft warning remains in effect.

NEMO notes that the Belize Coast Guard is standing by for any emergency situation.

Fisheries personnel in the outer cayes were directed by their management to shelter in place.

Rainfall is expected for the next five to seven days which can cause dangerous floods in Belize.

A flood watch remains in effect for the entire country with particular concerns for Belize, Cayo, Stann Creek and Toledo.

People along rivers and streams need to start relocating to higher grounds, if you can shelter in your home place food and valuable items out of the reach of floodwaters.

 Farmers are reminded to secure their assets.
