|Early November brought Hurricane Eta, which devastated parts of Nicaragua and Honduras before |
turning north and skirting the coast of Belize. It brought loads of rain, which caused some flooding
in our village.
|This is one of the middle roads in Hopkins. The water wasn't super deep, but you definitely don't |
want to miss the road and go into the ditch on either side of it.
|This is supposed to be a canal to the left of the road pictured above. Of course, it looks just the same |
as the road due to the flooding.
|Those of us closer to the beach had no flooding whatsoever, but as you headed inland toward the wet |
grass savanna there was more flooding. This land is just one block away from where we live.
|This is the main road into/out of Hopkins that crosses the wet grass savanna. Parts of it dip lower so |
the water can wash over it during flooding events, which it definitely did here. Thankfully, we don't
need to leave the village anytime soon.
