By BBN Staff: The National Meteorological Services of Belize and National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) reminds that a flood warning is in effect for Belize.
Tropical Storm Eta has weakened significantly and is now situated on the border between Nicaragua and Honduras.
Eta is expected to become a tropical depression by tonight.
The remnants of Eta are projected to emerge off the coast of Belize on Friday and then move north-eastward into the northwest Caribbean Sea where it is forecast to reform and strengthen into a tropical storm late on Friday while it continues to move away from Belize.
The current weather conditions could persist for the next 36 to 72 hours as Eta creeps across Honduras and portions of Guatemala.
NEMO says that communities along the Macal, Mopan and Belize Rivers are advised to be on high alert and take action to save life and property.
Areas and or communities that are at risk to or are experiencing flooding are Gales Point, Mullins River Village, Hope Creek, Sarawee, Sittee River, Monkey River, Bella Vista, San Pedro Colombia, Big Falls, Santa Teresa, Blue Creek, San Benito Poite, Crique Sarco, Sundaywood, and Conejo Creek.
More communities will experience flooding there as an increase in water running off the mountains and hills.
All are advised if you live along rivers and streams relocate to higher grounds.
NEMO warns to not remain at your home tonight if you know it is likely to flood during the course of the night.
Everyone is urged to move to a safe location. 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.
DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.
If your home is likely to flood, turn off the main power supply.
Beware of the movement of wild animals and snakes in your area.
