BlayzBrooks from Jamaica has posted some good overviews of the situation in Belize post-Richard. Read his postings on the Jamaica thread. Thanks Blayz!

Out here in the northern cayes we are 100% fine. TS Matthew was way worse for us than Richard. We were lucky that Richard was such as small storm - we were only 30 miles away.

The area around Ladyville did pretty well, and I dropped a friend in Orange Walk earlier today, and from the looks of it OW hardly got more than rain. The same can be said for San Pedro, as far as I've heard, and I can vouch for the fact that being a little further north was a good thing last night.
Belize City got hit a little harder, especially the south side of the city where the buildings are a little less well constructed. Some roofs were damaged and there was some of the usual flooding, as well as debris all over the streets. Some docks and stuff by the sea got damaged as well (I haven't been into the city myself but have seen pictures friends sent me).
I haven't been to see it, but Belmopan apparently got hit fairly hard. A friend of mine had a couple of trees fall on his house and another narrowly missed his truck.
All in all it seems that it was definitely a serious storm but could've been a lot worse.

Hi everyone, I'm a new contributor, posting from a few miles north of Belize City.
I'm hoping the city itself fared as well as possible, as Richard was already very much in town when I dropped a friend off there a little after 4pm. The winds were already fairly high and it's been raining pretty steadily most of the afternoon.
Further north we didn't really start feeling the effects until an hour or two later, but it got quite windy and has been raining lots ever since about 6pm. I haven't really moved from this general area since then, but so far around here I see little damage and no real flooding. The wind died down quite a lot by 10pm or so, although it hasn't stopped raining much for long at any point.
I haven't heard much from any friends from different areas, but hopefully this storm has passed through as relatively uneventfully elsewhere as it has done here.

- Update from Caye Caulker...

Oct.24, 2010 - 6:17 PM

The 7 PM CDT update just came in...  Hurricane Richard is about to make landfall between Belize City and Dangriga...

The report indicated 90 mph winds and the storm is moving at 10 mph.  There was some speculation that the storm might reach Cat 2 level before landfall, but it was not to be...  Thankfully...

On Caye Caulker, we've had almost steady rain lately, ranging from quite light to VERY heavy.  Winds have been sustained in the mid 40's with another gust or two to 56 mph.  The weather console says ' Hold on to your hat!' (the console actually has a sense of humor!).  Winds are now solidly from the east and just starting to come from the ESE...  Just what we expected...

Updates from through the day today are posted HERE at www.CayeCaulkerWeather.com ...

That's it for now, hope everyone is safe and sound...  Bye for now...

2:20 Sunday afternoon / 5 miles north of San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye

Winds are starting to really kick up, seas are pretty wild. I hope we get some rain before the gutters blow off.

Power is on. Phones work. Boats are not traveling. Our dogs and cat are all taking long naps.

Not thrilled to be facing the height of this near dark - we like to see what hits us - but we should all be fine.

We called one relative to tell him not to worry, only to have him ask "Hey I heard something about that - is the storm above or below Cuba?" Oy......never mind ........

Hurricane Warning for the coast of Belize.
Current predictions are that Richard will be cat 2 when he comes ashore. Seas are predicted to be 3-5 feet above normal tides. Point of impact is shifting north and is currently somewhere between Dangriga Town and Belize City. These are low-lying areas, and the high tides will probably make for some big floods.

We're pretty far from the storm and many hours from impact, but the waves are already breaking through our pier. As usual the real danger is not wind, but water - and there promises to be a lot of water. High tides of October plus a full moon, then add a 3-5 foot storm surge ........ will keep you posted.

Out here in the northern cayes of Belize we're ready for Richard - and the day could not be more beautiful.
Doubtful too much will happen here, but the little boat likes being tucked up on the beach when things get rough, so we do her that honor periodically.  The insurance company loves the pictures.  :-)

To our friends in Honduras and Southern Belize all good thoughts are with you - we will be looking forward to hearing the all clear and knowing you are ok.

On Ambergris Caye we're keeping an eye on Richard for sure.
Friends south of us (Belize City, Placencia, etc) are watching with greater interest also. For now the meandering Richard seems mostly like a rain-maker, which the north of the country needs. High tides are a bit of a concern out here in the Northern Cayes, but we have the Barrier Reef protecting us and it usually does a very good job!

  • Date: Tue, 19 Oct 2010 06:38:09 -0600
Something to think about is sitting out in front of us. We do need the rain.

Big request to all the weather mavens out there ---- when you refer to Central America can you be a little (LOT) more specific? It's like a throw-away phrase ..... Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize..... we are all central america and we all face the Caribbean - but the distances and conditions are considerably different.

Just for some local flavor am posting a photo of a different slice of the Belize Cayes.  Lighthouse Reef area. 

So for now .......... as the local weather man says sometimes .......... the weather yesterday was pretty good, and last night it was very nice.  Today and tomorrow will to be pretty good too.  
Next week the weather is expected to be very nice.   Enjoy your weekend.  


- the day after Paula's non-visit
  • By Diane Campbell <dcampbellbz at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2010 07:27:34 -0600
On Ambergris Caye we were fortunate to have felt no effects from Paula at all.
No high water.
No winds.
Not even a drop of rain.

Today is another clear, crisp cool morning.
Seas area calm.
Light breeze from northwest.
Classes are back in session in island schools.

Energizing - beautiful - grateful to be right here right now !!


Paula's rapid development and close proximity to our shores is a reminder of the benefits of prepared and informed. If you are already prepared, 50% of the fuss and potential tension is eliminated. If you are informed you can make a reasonable decision on what to do and when to do it.

Thoughts go out to our neighbors who are getting soaked in Cuba. Paula may have some tricks saved up for later in the week, but we're ready if she shows up again.

Does anyone out there have info on the blob that took her place in the central West-Caribbean near Honduras? Looks like the rain we did not get from Paula might come with those clouds?

Conditions on Ambergris Caye -
Cool, breeze from the north/northwest.
Calm seas.  Partly-cloudy.

TS Watch for the northern coast of Belize should be lifted shortly.

Schools in San Pedro are closed today due to that decision being made last night as a precaution.

For today:
Storm surge not expected on AC.
Tropical Force winds are not expected on Ambergris Caye.

I am impressed with the state of readiness of our local EOC/NEMO.

Today is GORGEOUS !

Cool temps, breezes from unusual directions, clear crisp air and skies.
As the sun moves south the rays of the sun are longer and colors are richer. Dragonflies are out in armadas of biblical proportions, gracefully decorating the near-sky and eliciting a lot of "did you SEE that?" an "WOW".

Perfect sleeping weather - no AC needed. No bugs! Is this perfect ...... yes it is.

As a weather junkie (this is our common bond, no?) I checked the satellite this morning - the blob over by Cayman and Jamaica is not a welcome sight. A system moving south and east ?! Holy typhoon Batman, where's a Weather-Channel superhero to go for his next broadcast ?

But seriously folks, this is not such a great place for said blob to be. With a day as beautiful as today it is hard to imagine a storm anywhere ...... this just doesn't feel like hurricane weather, but conditions may teach us differently.

- TD 16
  • By Diane Campbell <dcampbellbz at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 29 Sep 2010 06:15:36 -0600
Our attention and concern are focused on the many people affected by the heavy rains. The landslides in Mexico from Matthew, and the present threat from TD 16. Coincidentally in 2008, a system designated as TD 16 drenched Belize and caused flooding of historical proportions.

I too, wish that we'd get more specific info on systems in our particular areas, but then again our own weather-casters are doing a reasonable job.

Ambergris Caye -

Small but beautiful electrical storm before dawn today (sunday)

High water yesterday, with waves up to 4 feet high inside the reef.
Winds in TS range off and on.

Beaches at water line are clean as a whistle, but there is a lot of debris up in the bushes and in yards where the high water came.
Damage to piers reported here and there.

Low-lying fill-land properties/neighborhoods are flooded. Last night's high tide probably created a little more impact, but too soon to go look.


Mainland - waiting for reports on the radio this morning, but basically the message is that rivers are rising and many bridges are under water. I'm sure other beach areas had significant wave action - have seen a couple of photos from Placencia that were impressive.

Minor disruption of airline services yesterday.


Expecting more rain this week. The islands do well with heavy rains in general as the water just runs into the sea. The mainland has the issues now with rivers and floods. Concerns for crops in the fields that had not yet been harvested - rice in particular in Toledo District.


LOVE FM is doing a great job of keeping everybody informed.

Report from Ambergris Caye:
Power went off for a while last night, back on now. Quite a bit of thunder around 2 am. Very gusty winds. Seas are a little rough but not scary.
Not nearly as much rain here as we expected.
The rest of the country seems to be getting soaked - when the area- specific reports come over the radio I'll post an update. LOVE FM broadcast all night with updates, doing their usual stupendous job.

- Matthew
  • By Diane Campbell <dcampbellbz at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2010 12:51:58 -0600
Preliminary Phase announced for Belize. Red flag was hoisted at 6 AM.

NEMO EOC met this morning and has an action plan that will be implemented if it is needed.

Listen to LOVE FM.  All NEMO updates will be read there.

At this time the main risk to Belize is from heavy rainfall and floods, although waves along coastal areas may cause significant erosion.

People on outlying cayes (especially in the south) should come to port.

People on mainland who live along rivers and in low-lying flood-prone areas should seek higher ground before the storm hits.


The forecasts for Matthew are all over the place. The system could affect us in one way or another well into next week. The main advice at this time is to be prepared, stay informed and plan to get wet.

Yesterday was Independence Day with way more party and parade than ever before and no thought of anything but a really delightful, happy time for all.   Belize turned 21 yesterday but I am not sure we really want to grow up.   

Today we are keeping a close eye on 95L.   Looks like a similar story to 10 years ago, almost to the day.  Hurricane Keith.  Eeek.  

We were on Ambergris Caye for Keith - a stalled hurricane varying between 3 and 4 (mostly 4) looping over and back and then over and back again.  Very bad for the nerves.   The aftermath looked a mess, but the strong houses stood up and the island was fully back on it's feet and open for business by Christmas.    

4 people died in Keith in our area.   They were all on boats.  Please people, do not even think of riding out a storm on a boat.  

If anybody needs it I have a pretty comprehensive hurricane prep plan, attached.   And hope you don't need it !!

Meanwhile - today it is absolutely beautiful here and we're living life to the fullest.     Very blessed to be in Belize....... "Land of the Free by the Carib Sea. "

We're about 20 miles south of where Karl came ashore. Gusty, rainy, intermittent power outages. Winds have been from "the back" (blowing offshore from west/south) making for strong sea-current but minimal waves inside the reef.
Cisterns are full.   Frogs are croaking.
Schools in the north of the country are closed due to possible flooding issues. Rains were pretty heavy at daybreak, but it is barely sprinkling right now.
A great day for a good book and a nap.

Hello All,
Well TS Karl is out there, lurking over the horizon...  Conditions on Caye Caulker in Belize are very calm at the moment, with light winds of 4 mph from the NW and a fairly steady barometer at 1009.5 mb...
At the moment, indications are that TS Karl will pass to the well to the north of us, so it looks like we may be spared again.  Belize is VERY lucky, in terms of storms... :)
If more develops, I'll report current conditions, or check the website for particulars and webcam shots...
We be thinking of our neighbors in the Yucatan, stay safe everyone...

- Bitches Brew?

  • Date: Mon, 6 Sep 2010 08:17:41 -0600
With homage to Miles Davis, we seem to be facing a not so musical version of such a brew in the Western Caribbean in the coming days.

NHC predicts Gaston becoming a Cat-4 or 5?!
Although the GFL says Gaston will fade away, it agrees that the hot water and low shear over our way is ripe for "something". Home-brew at this end of the big pond is infrequent, but when it happens it's very powerful and there is not much warning.

Today's weather - HOT and WINDY with very high tides, and rolling surf inside the reef (this on a body of water that usually looks like a lake).
Lots of ropes on the little boat this morning.

Best to all from lovely Ambergris Caye, Belize.

Alex passed last night.   All is well on Ambergris Caye.   Preparing for Alex was a lot of work, but good practice.   Out here on AC the storm was blustry, but not damaging.

We'd like to thank StormCarib for the biggest laugh of the day yesterday!!!    
Using the "how close is it" function, we had this response:


How close is it? Website for StormCarib


Results for Ambergris Caye (San Pedro), Belize (18.03N, 87.9W):
The eye of the storm is about 51 miles (81 km) away. If the system keeps moving at its current speed of 12 mph and directly towards you, it will take around 4.2 hours to reach you.    You are already experiencing strong winds. Better take cover instead of sitting behind the computer!

  • Date: Sat, 26 Jun 2010 12:38:59 -0600
Those of us on Ambergris Caye are going to get a direct visit from Alex later today. Estimates are now that the center of the storm will reach us around 9 pm.

NEMO has been activated for a couple of days. Boats are out of the water, tourists who were planning to leave have gone, people in the lowest lying areas of the island have been advised to move.

Lots of families with little kids evacuated voluntarily starting yesterday. Boats have been pulled out of the water, but few of us are boarding up our windows.

The main concern at present is flooding on the mainland. Out here in the cayes heavy rains run off and we're ok - the mainland areas near rivers are the ones at risk.

My dogs refuse to go outside ..... the cat doesn't care.

Stay dry!

So far, we've had wind and rain coming from the north with a good squall soaking the island last evening, just as the festivities were getting underway for the Caye Caulker Lobster Fest.
Right now, winds are light from the N and NNW averaging 6 mph with light rain.  The barometer is is falling at 1007.9 mb.  Recent sat images indicate intense thunderstorm activity to the east...  BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES...

Ambergris Caye - Agatha's Effects:

We had some cloudy spells and a couple of big rains ...... but after that day with 11 inches, it all seemed minor to us.  We're fortunate.

Putting the rains in perspective -- it's June 2, and usually we are fretting over the water level in our cistern (capacity 26,000 gallons) , which by this time of year is pretty low.   In fact before the recent rains, our cistern was as low as it's ever gotten in 18 years ........    But yesterday if overflowed.      That's rain!

Sunny today.  Hot.    So humid that my photcopy paper is too soggy to feed through the printer.

The blob down by Panama looks interesting, but on a beautiful day like this why worry.

- wow

Ambergris Caye --- wet and wild.

At 7 this morning the rain gauge said that about 1.4 inches had fallen over the past 24 hours.

As of right now (1:45 pm) we've registered 10.41 inches in 24 hours ........ about 8 inches in the past 4 hours.
This is one for the record books.

Boats are sinking next to piers, and weather freaks are having an adrenaline high.

The roads will be a mess here on the island, but we'll be fine. The mainland is subject to flooding - hopefully they are not getting the kind of rain we're experiencing !!

- Several showers!
  • By Diane Campbell <dcampbellbz at gmail.com>

Last night we had a super thunder and lightening show.
Official rain gauge  located a few miles away says and inch and a
half, but my pool says 2.
It's still raining - mud puddles are us.
After a very dry season, it's quite exciting to have rain.  This
system began on Sunday (in think) with a few sun-showers.  Full sun,
magical soft sprinkles of rain.  The brilliant sparkles when the drops
hit the water were breath-takingly beautiful.

Blessings to those in the path of the oil.   As each of us appreciates
the unique gift of being by the sea, may we step forward and protect
her.    She needs it, she deserves it, and we will die without her.

Reporting from lovely Ambergris Caye, Belize ...... the weather satellite shows a large batch of showers in our area - and yes, it's wet!

The official weather forecast read .......
        Tuesday - some showers
        Wednesday - several showers
        Thursday - a few showers

Gotta love the dry wit of Belize Met!

Have a safe and beautiful evening,
