By Benjamin Flowers: Deputy Mayor Allan Pollard said today that the Belize City Council’s cleanup works following Hurricane Lisa are nearing completion.

Pollard, while receiving a donation of food pantries to distribute to affected families, said that the council has been on a persistent cleanup campaign immediately following the storm in collaboration with other authorities and that those efforts are showing around the city.

“Our efforts for cleanup have been continuous, they have been robust and we’re at about 95 percent finished. The city is almost back to normal, but now it’s time to get the households back to normal,” Pollard said.

Hurricane Lisa hit Belize on November 2, bringing with it massive wind and water damage to homes, roads, electricity infrastructure, and disrupting the lives of Belizeans across the country.

Some three weeks later, there are families still reportedly displaced by the storm’s impact, while mountains of debris piled on the side of city streets are being collected by lines of dump trucks and heavy machinery.

Following the storm private contractors and even sugarcane farmers volunteered their time and equipment, to assist with removing the debris from the city. The number of truckloads of debris three weeks after the storm is estimated in the tens of thousands.
