Video of Mahahual after Hurricane Earl

Well  Hurricane Earl has passed, and Mahahual is still standing.  Earl hit Belize about 200 miles south of us.  I have not been into town yet, but I don’t think there is a lot of damage, just some things thrown around and some knocked down palapas.

We had a lot of wind and rain here, with some flooding.  The power and internet stayed on the whole time during the storm, it flicked off and on a couple of times, but that was about it.

I went into town late afternoon and everybody was boarding up all the places on the malecon.  What was funny the waiters at Big Mama’s were having a party and drinking while they were boarding up the place, and taking down their palapas.  They were having a good time in the face of a hurricane coming.

I will be going into town in a little while to check things out.  Here is a video of the damage around Mahahual taken early this morning by Michele Murgo of Pizza Papi.

Thanks for reading,

  1. We were in Xcalak and got out Tuesday; any word on what Earl did to that wonderful little pueblo? We hated to leave but couldn’t afford to get stuck.
