Belizeans affected by floods still getting assistance

Posted: Thursday, December 3, 2020. 1:30 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The hurricane season may be over, but many are still feeling its effects.

Some 2,800 Belizeans continue to get assistance for food, household appliances and other supplies as a result of the impact of the rains associated with Hurricanes Eta and Iota, according to Minister of Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Orlando Habet, who briefed Cabinet on Tuesday.

Cabinet requested the production of an updated map of flood-prone areas by the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) which is included in Habet’s Ministry. This has a deadline for completion before the start of the 2021 hurricane season next June.  

The record-breaking 2020 hurricane season featured 30 named storms, 13 hurricanes and six major hurricanes, two of which, Eta and Iota, struck Central America in succession in November, causing hundreds of deaths between them and millions in damages.
