Rains over the past week have resulted in rivers being flooded especially in the Cayo District. The result has been UNUSUAL flooding occurring in the Belize River because of the influx of water coming down the Macal and the Mopan River. A lot of rains occurred over the Peten area over the northern part of Guatemala and this has also resulted in runoffs to that Mopan River and has been adding to the flooding situation on the Belize River. The Iguana Creek wooden bridge that joins Blackman Eddie and the Mennonite community across the river is still under some three feet of water and it’s impassable. It has been reported that this bridge has been impassable for the past 72 hours which is A RECORD, since this has not been noted to have occurred over the last five years. So the waters that have been coming down across the Belize river has been UNPRECEDENTED in this area.
