The water came up high, but not dangerously so (not much higher than the picture above at Mata Rocks). And we were lucky again to be on the south side of the storm…since it moves counter clock wise, it minimizes what could be a very high ocean surge.
Here are some pictures Rhonda took when she braved the weather for a morning walk. Rhonda is the host of Morning Matters here in San Pedro.
The Belize Yacht Club likes to fill in their seawall with trash and palm fronds…it usually collapses when lots of water comes in.
With the swirling bands, rain and winds should continue all moring.
And right now? The wind is picking up again (40+mphs) and it is POURING. I think I”ll stay in for a bit. It’s probably a good idea if everyone does.
