By BBN Staff: The National Meteorological Services of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) says that parts of the Cayo and Belize Districts remain under severe flooding.

The water is receding in the West, but Cayo continues to deal with severe flood conditions.

NEMO says that the receding water is rising higher in the Belize River Valley and on the highways affecting communities in its path.

Scotland Halfmoon, Rancho Dolores and Lemonal, Flowers Bank, Isabella, Crooked Tree, Lords Bank, Ladyville, Vista Del Mar, Miles 1, 4, 8 and 12 communities on the George Price Highway including Hattieville, Freetown Sibun and Gracie Rock, are advised to note that flood waters are rising and are expected to continue rise.

Eight shelters remain open mostly in the Cayo and Belize rural areas of Rancho Dolores, Lemonal and Crooked Tree.

All major highways are open.

 Spanish Lookout is still cut off via the Iguana Creek Bridge, Valley of Peace and Baking Pot Ferry.

The Low-Lying Bridge in Cayo remains closed.

The Bullet Tree Bridge is open but the Santa Familia road is closed to traffic.

The entrance to Benque and Succotz on the George Price highway is accessible.

Calla Creek is accessible from the George Price Highway.

The Coastal Road remains closed.

All are advised if you live along rivers and streams relocate to higher grounds.
