Will Monkey River Flood?

And on the topic of rising waters – residents in the community of Monkey River are reporting that they are experiencing an elevation in the water levels. Today, we asked Hendy about the situation in that southern coastal village. Here’s what she had to say.


On the Phone: Tennielle Williams-Hendy, Principal Hydrologist

“We have locations around Monkey River; we have on the Swasey and Bladen branches which they both join like the situation with the Belize River – they both join to form Monkey River which are seeing increasing water levels in both systems. So, it is expected that Monkey River will be increasing and our data shows that it is above normal and increasing.”
