Contingency Fund put into action for flood relief

Posted: Thursday, October 13, 2022. 6:15 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: As of Tuesday, the Cabinet has announced that it has approved initial monies from the Contingency Fund to assist those most affected by the flooding over the weekend due to the heavy rains caused by Hurricane Julia.

Cabinet received a preliminary damage report from the Minister of Sustainable Development, Climate Change & Disaster Risk Management, Orlando Habet, on the flooding resulting from the passage of Julia and has requested that a damage assessment and needs analysis be conducted.

Following a subsequent flyover of the affected areas in the Cayo District on Wednesday, Habet told the Government Press Office that he expects farmers are beginning to quantify their losses, especially of corn, beans and livestock, as well as sugar cane in the fields belonging to Santander Group.

“Whilst we might not have had the rise in the river as much as it happened during Eta and Iota, this one has some devastation that also didn’t occur with that flooding event because of where the water fell, and apparently all the water fell in the productive sector areas apart from what was coming from up in the Mopan and Macal area,” Minister Habet noted in the interview.

Over the next few days, early action is hoped to minimize losses from expected flooding in the Belize River Valley area.
