Douglas villagers will be home for Christmas

Story PictureFive hundred and forty five residents of Douglas, Orange Walk District, will spend Christmas at home. The residents were removed from the village because of a threat of diseases following the recent floods from Tropical Depression sixteen. The National Emergency Management Organisation says that the quarantine will be lifted on Saturday and a clean-up of the entire village has already begun. NEMO officials, along with public health authorities and the Belize Defence Force are also conducting sanitation work as part of the clean-up.
