Tropical Storm Arthur Hits Belize

In a strange series of events, what we thought was just a dying tropical depression already moving its way inland, proved to be a powerful storm that left its mark in Belize. What was left of Tropical Depression Arthur dumped some serious rain over Belize causing major flooding in the mainland.

In San Pedro, the damaged was limited to mostly sunken and displaced skiffs, downed trees, flooded yards and homes, with only a few losing their roofs. The storm packed tropical storm winds gust of about 40mph, dumped about 10 inches of rain and produced some powerful electrical storms.
