Kelly Street Resident Warns Of Live Wires on Ground, One Month after Hurricane Earl

Maria Alamilla, a resident of Kelly Street in Belize City, came to our studios today. Her worry is that children, specifically those going to the nearby primary school at Ephesus Seventh Day Adventist, run the risk of getting electrocuted while walking through the alley adjacent to her house. According to Alamilla, the wind and rain of Hurricane Earl damaged two lampposts in the alleyway and now live wires are dangling dangerously close to the ground. She has since contacted the Belize Electricity Limited but to no avail.

“We have two lamppost; one down and the other is dangling, still dangling. And then the lamp itself is open and the wires are about six inches or maybe a feet, all different and they are live wire and children have to use the alley. So I fear that they touch it and they are live wire and they get shock. I d babysitting and the wires are low in my yard also.”

“So the concern is that it is a hazard.”


Maria Alamilla

“Yes it is a hazard. I cannot let my children in the yard, go and play, because the wires are very low and if they touch it, it will be my responsibility because I am a babysitter. I want them to look into it. I have gone to complain to B.E.L. two to three times. The supervisor said they are going to look after it, but nothing has been done yet.”
