By BBN Staff: Due to torrential rains affecting Belize, portions of Western Belize are experiencing excessive flooding.
The Belize Water Services (BWS) is advising customers to store enough water since the water supply may be compromised due to the floods.
Rains could continue for the next 36 to 72 hours as Eta moves across Honduras and Guatemala.
NEMO says that more communities will experience flooding there as an increase in water running off the mountains and hills.
The Macal and Mopan rivers are at major flood stage.
All residents as warned are advised to relocate to higher grounds.
People living downstream and alongside the Belize River are strongly advised to take action to save life.
All are advised if you live along rivers and streams relocate 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.
