Southern Belize Experiences Flooding

On Saturday night, torrential rains caused a portion of the Southern Highway to be impassable. Pictures show the bridge in Jacintoville, eight miles outside Punta Gorda Town, flooded with about five feet of water. Personnel from the Ministry of Works, Department of Transport and NEMO were on the scene monitoring and managing the situation. It was not until mid-morning on Sunday that NEMO announced that the bridge had reopened for traffic. Motorists were allowed to pass with caution since some water was still over the bridge. There are no reports of any damages or injuries as a result of the flooding.
