Northernmost town battens down for rough night

As of five p.m., a total of six shelters have been opened. In Corozal Town, Our Lady of Guadalupe R.C. School in Altamira and Church of Christ School in Port Saul. While four others have been opened in the coastal villages of Copper Bank, Sarteneja, Progresso and Chunox. DEMO coordinator Willard Levy says that all partner agencies are installed to ensure safety for those who may eventually access the shelters.
