NEMO reminds that flood warning remains in effect for the country

Posted: Wednesday, November 4, 2020. 12:12 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) reminds everyone that a flood warning is in effect for the entire country.

There is particular concern over rising water levels in Cayo, Stann Creek, Toledo and Belize.

Tropical Storm Eta, which is now inland over Nicaragua is weakening.

 Eta is expected to continue weakening as it interacts with the mountainous terrain of Nicaragua and Honduras and it should become a tropical depression by tonight.

The remnants of Eta are then forecast to emerge off the coast of Belize on Friday and then move north-eastward into the northwest Caribbean Sea where it is forecast to re-strengthen into a tropical storm late on Friday while it continues to move away from Belize.

The major threat from this system to Belize continues to be heavy rainfall and flooding.

Some locations across the country have already received over two inches of rainfall and additional rainfall is expected.

Rainfall totals of 15-25 inches with locally higher amounts are possible. Winds over the open sea are already strong and gusty and this will continue to produce large swells and damaging waves along coastal areas of the country.

All are advised if you live along rivers and streams you 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.

 DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. If your home is likely to flood, turn off the main power supply.

NEMO says that staff countrywide is on full alert.
