James Janmohamed - San Pedro Superhero

Since writing this post, Jim has been in the paper, on TV, all over the place! So if you see him, remember to ask for his autograph!

Here is a copy of an email from Jim thanking all. I just wanted to share this with all of you. Jim is our NEMO head here and without him it would be blind panic in these times.
A big thank you to Jim and Jamila for everything they have done. Jim, good luck with the continuing work in Corozal.

Status of Hurricane Felix


At 12 o clock mid day The Prime Minister of Belize Rt. Hon. Said Musa declared an all clear phase for Belize, however from Independence south to the Belize Guatemala Border there remains a Tropical Storm Watch.

This morning I withdrew the volunteer evacuation phase for both Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker to stop people from carrying out any Evacuation.

The earlier notice of water being shut off has been rescinded. I am keeping the Coastguard on the Island to ensure safe return of our boats and evacuees. The police will keep a watchful eye on the repatriation of our residents and will stay on high alert until things get back to normal.

I am on standby for the south and will keep informed all concerned of any change to the situation. However the Relief and Reconstruction of the Corozal District will continue as soon as the storm has dissipated.

At this juncture I would like to say that without the people mentioned below my task would have been Impossible. I would like to praise:

Government of Belize, NEMO, San Pedro Emergency Committee, Caye Caulker Emergency Committee, Coast Guard, Belize Defence Force, The Police Department, Belize Fire Service, The Public Service, The Customs Department, The Immigration Department, Belize Electricity Ltd., The San Pedro Water Co. Ltd., Belize Water Service, Belize Telemedia Ltd., British Army Training Support Unit Belize,HMS Portland of The Royal Navy.

There were some challenging situations These people and their leaders worked diligently to insure the Safety and Security of all our residents, both of The Cayes and Corozal District. I ask all the recipients of this E-Mail to please pass it on to their staff and members.

I Thank God for sparing us again.
