There are about 1000 persons who need to be evacuated from villages surrounding Corozal Town during a hurricane threat. These persons reside mainly in villages next to the Rio Hondo River that runs from San Victor to Estero. The river is prone to flooding following heavy rains. Additionally, the villages located along the northern coastline are also vulnerable to storm surges. Some roads within the Corozal District, including some major roads, may become flooded and even erode after a few days of torrential rainfall. Roads from Chunox to Sarteneja could become impassable to small vehicles.
The New River that originates at the foothills of Lamanai, flows eastward towards the Caribbean Sea. During heavy rains this waterway may flood the Northern Highway at the toll bridge area, the Louisiana Area in Orange Walk Town, as well as the Banquitas Bridge and along the Northern banks of the village of San Estevan.
The Rio Hondo River may cause intense flooding to the villages of San Antonio, San Roman and Douglas. During severe flooding persons living in Douglas must evacuate.The river recedes very slowly.
Cayo residents are considered fairly well protected from hurricanes that threaten communities in the low-lying areas of the country. However, there are communities in Cayo that are prone to flash flooding from the rivers and waterways that run through the district.
When flooding occurs, the local emergency management committee is activated in order to supervise the orderly evacuation of the local population.
During the approach of a hurricane, shelters throughout the district are opened and are well utilized to provide accommodation for evacuees from the low-lying areas of Belize.
The communities located on the coastline and along riverbanks in the Stann Creek District are especially vulnerable to destructive wind action, flooding, and tidal surges brought on by severe storms. These communities include: San Pablo, Independence, Placencia, Seine Bight, Riversdale, Sittee River, Hopkins, Hope Creek, Sarawee, Middlesex and Mullins River.
At the approach of a powerful storm these communities need to be alerted in advance so that adequate precautions are put in place to protect lives and property. The hurricane shelters within and around these communities play a vital role in providing housing before, during and after a storm. The integrity of the shelters in these areas is therefore monitored on a regular basis.
