Sugar Barge Crashes into Historic Monument during Storm

Phillip Willoughby

The weather system also caused three barges to run aground near the Belize City harbor. This morning, the B.S.I. vessel collided near the Baron Bliss Lighthouse and remained there until just before midday when the Swing Bridge was swung to allow for a tugboat to pull the barge away. CEMO Coordinator Phillip Willoughby told News Five more.

“The folks at B.S.I. had three barge run aground right in the harbor here so we will be swinging the bridge momentarily to facilitate a tugboat to assist the barge and bring them where they are grounded from. Also beside that, I know that there were two boats on the Phillip Goldson Highway. I know, again, lots of houses have lost its roof; in many areas, a lot of trees a lot of blocking, but we will correct the pruning of trees. The garbage situation; that will be rectified commencing sometime this afternoon.”
