Hurricane Season ends, restoration work continues after Lisa

The restoration and recovery continue after Hurricane Lisa battered Belize City four weeks ago. The National Meteorological Service says the damage assessment is ongoing and an initial estimate places the loss from the hurricane at over 10 million US dollars for the housing sector alone. Several homes, schools and businesses reported roof damage or complete roof failure. There are also reported damage to other structures, and road network and some minimal losses in the agricultural sector. Here in Belize City, there are still light posts down in some parts of the city and homes are still hammering up. We asked Mayor Bernard Wagner for an update today. 

 

This hurricane season produced 14 named storms, of which eight became hurricanes and two intensified to major hurricanes with winds reaching 111 miles per hour or greater. An average hurricane season has 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes.
