Killer Trans-Gender Storm; The Aftermath

Alma then Arthur Struck with surprising fury.

Wow! Who would have thought. The very first day of hurricane season and our rainy season, that Belize would get whacked so hard. Five people dead, at least two missing, The Hummingbird and Southern highways impassable, bridges and houses destroyed.

Was it a hurricane? No, not at all. It was Arthur, who started out as Alma on the Pacific side, came ashore hitting Nicaragua and Honduras, lost strength and was down-graded to a tropical depression, then went out into the Caribbean Sea, regaining strength and became a tropical storm, and got renamed as Arthur since it was on the Atlantic side of things, and came back ashore hitting Belize - especially southern Belize.

I've got a few more pictures, all of these courtesy of Elsie King, of some of the water around our area. This should give you a good idea that, if we got hit with this, what the hell happened down south with all the mountains and rivers and whatnot.
